SouthCoast 22, Chrysler 20 and 22, Compac, MacGregor 22-25 (i prefer the swing keel for stability over the water ballast) to name a few.

Re: Islander 32

I have been waiting for a good Perry boat to come available up here in the great lakes so that we can add it to the fleet but nothing has materialized yet. An I34-2 would be fantastic.

Re: Islander 32

A little insight to the headliner thing. If the original had been taken down often for adding things to the deck it was likely trashed and that is why they did the "custom" job. The original...

Re: advice -- swing keel vs water ballast vs fixed keel
