Re: Island Packet 35
How's the project coming along? We're looking at an IP35 this weekend.....seen a few '89's over the past 2 weeks. Chainplate(s) and mast base access (for wiring) are my only two complaints. Everything else appears easily accessible...stuffing box is a bit tight though...full keel... There's a few videos (Mack Sails being one) out there on IP Chainplate replacement. They have a set fee for replacing all rigging and chainplates now. IP probably has the same thing right at the factory and is of course quite a bit closer to your location.
Any storm damage to the rudder or keel?
Keep us posted on your progress!
