As of a few hours ago I now have my very own hole in the water! Freshly waxed and bottom painted.
After launching


On stands.


And some vidoes of it on the lift and going into the water:

Looks good, and have fun on her!

But you missed a spot in the lower right back corner of the bottom of the boat. So you you need to rehaul and get some wax there!

I am looking for volunteers to come and shine the stainless! :)

I am excited to find new and interesting ways to spend money I don't have. I am beginning to wonder what kind of salve boat owners use on their rectums to reduce the burning...

:D Congrats on a beautiful boat..... What year is she? I have an 81 that I currently am restoring so if you have any questions let me know. As soon as I get my dig camera back I will be posting some progress pics. These are some sweet sailing boats.

Congratulations!!:)

Good looking boat. I agree with Faster, a larger diameter wheel would be nice, but you can use it as is and put that upgrade on your wishlist. Along with a lot of other things. Welcome to boat ownership.;)

My first boat was an Islander 28 (1976 I think) which I owned for 12 years before we bought our C&C.

I loved its performance and the joinery work in it. It will always have a special place in my mind.

Good luck with your new boat. Shes a beauty.

Congrats, huguley3! I'm jealous--our new boat is 300 miles north of us buried away for the winter.

Enjoy the warm winter sailing in FL!

I am going to keep the name Sunny as it matches the paint on the boat and is pretty new. I have been told by my "friends" that is Sunny is not really appropriate for me. :)

That makes it ironic--even better! Congratulations!
