John they are road trailers . Just look up hydraulic boat trailers. They are not cheap but Damn convenient when hauling many different boats.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

It's a common trailer, made by Brownell, you need a semi for this trailer, they do make trailers for fifth wheel on a one ton pick up.

This is my Cascade 42 Maria Victoria.
I’m the third owner and first to finish and sail her. Bought her off a driveway where she had set for 18 years.
After a short 4 year stay on y driveway I launched her and have been sailing her for 17 yers.
She has a Facebook age with lots of photos.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

1978 32 Islander MK2
#157 of 211 built by evolved Mcglasson group outta Costa Mesa Ca, designed by infamous Robert Perry (who’ is banned from this website) as larger version of the much praised/sought after Islander 28.

My first boat was a mcglassom built Wayfarer 24, Alberg folk boat inspired, but this 32 Islander MK2 is great example how mcglasson evolved thru time, to a blue water inspired (people in yard always think my vessel is a blue water boat) coastal cruiser, Pacific Ocean insoired/tough/stiff sea kindly traits with her keel stepped mast, shorter boom and so well planned out quarters and simple basic design/systems (came with blue water foot/hand pump water system/bilge pump)

I’m a mcglasson loyalist so of course when this opportunity came I grabbed it, could’ve flipped it as it was so cheap but again, it’s a boat/model/builder/designer I admire/adore so it’s my money pit; I validate this to myself as I liveaboard her too.
Biggest thing I love about Islander 32 mk2, simplicity & small enough/highly maneuverable I can single hand her yet larger enough I can liveaboard with a woman in decent state of comfort/legit go cruising without being cramp and bare bones of supplies/affordable for median income budget...pretty much everything I want in a cruising vessel...

Still in refit mode, on hard...been trying to focus on under the waterline exclusively but of course I’ve even got interior ripped apart.

Hoping to be recommissioned summer of 2019?

PS-how do I spin pics, they always post sideways???

Re: Got a plastic classic?

jumping in just to say that, although i haven't found my gal yet, i'm definitely a plastic classic addict

am looking very much forward to working on mine --- with the thrill/fear/hope that i can do it on my own

in any case, the ones that seriously interest me are rare as hen's teeth in europe


if ever anyone opens a yard specialised in resuscitating old dames, please let me know, would be interested in lending a hand

And I'll be interested in GETTING a helping hand!!
In my insanity I fantasize creating such a yard!
What is wrong with us?
Yesterday I saw a Beneteau 40 and a Bounty or a Rhodes 41 (couldn't tell, it had a full boat cover) side by side in their slips from the stern. They couldn't be much more different. One, broad, no overhang, and a sugar scoop.. the other, a long overhang tapering to a small transom. One beamy with little room in the slip, the other, narrow with plenty of room on either side. One with a roomy interior, the other, well, we can say nothing is far from reach on that boat.
I can imagine having a lot of fun on either boat. And yet, if someone said, "you can have either one, choose!" it would be an easy choice for me: the old, skinny, slower boat!
What is wrong with me?

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Some folks have been joining the Plastic Classics social group but have NOT posted their greetings! That’s no way to win the t-shirt that says “old school rules!” or the oven mitts that say “I’m so hot.” There are also some 50 year-old bronze turnbuckles in the box too I think. And half a tube of 5200, but that may have kicked by now.
