Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

man I have no idea how my wooden boat survived at sea then as well as countless others, by design...no wooden boat is ever 100 percent watertight and yet many of us still voyage on them and sometimes fantastically...with great seaworthy results.

the issues with the union polaris is that wood is used in structural areas that are then not integrated to the glass parts in a real good way even new, dont even get me started with the deck structure(I still have nightmares about that union 36 I checked out in panama that was abandoned)...and that was the boat builders errror and not the designers...

in any case

Im absolutely flabbergasted btw that this thread still keeps on keeping on...(so thats why Ill add some fuel to the fire, ajajajajja)

Islander 36 now FOR SALE!
