We had LPU'd white. He sold it to a guy and I think he sold it to a pack of hippies. They did that paint job.

Had minimal knowledge of sailing a 40 ft boat and am soon to try to rent my house and cruse from jville fl into the clear waters of the carribean anx start liveing my life instead of working threw it ....I solved alot of wild issues with my one time boat restore project and i mean all of it.....from fiber glass to hunting down a dot electrical contrator and convoensing him to sell.me an aluminum light pole...yes my mast is a light pole to a custom cat rig boom , .....i dont know hoe o did it but here she isClick image for larger version

Re: What Model of Boat is This?

I would take a stab as something built by IONA. It has a couple signature traits of both Iona and Islander at the time. There are not a lot of specimens of anything coming out of that factory and most everything they built was off of molds from other companies that went under before them.

Everyone was trying to get in on the success of the market Frank Butler discovered with the Catalina 22 so there are a number of ~20' 70's short-run production boats and molds passed around the West Coast.

I think part of the challenge of any restoration project is picking the right object for the restoration.

Obviously, the worse looking object (at start) will lead to more admirable remarks from people who see a big improvement in the finished project.

Given that you picked that boat (which looks horrible in current condition) I see nowhere but "improvement" ahead for the project.

Good luck.

Re: What Model of Boat is This?

My take on that is I would rather keep all these old pocket trailer sailers around than scrap them. They are dreams that someone picks up and works on and some come back to life. The ones that don't are sitting in yards and fields and storage areas like this.

The other side are the people who purchase the $100 dreams from Marina's or organizations like Boat Angels, then anchor them and they eventually become derilect - that makes the days much longer for the rest of us trying to find a place to anchor while cruising since there is either derilict boats we have to worry about anchoring close to, or a closed ancorage because of derilict boats forced them to pass ordinances.

So, more power to the poster and I am glad he choose this dream to start with and not one anchored out. It does not take long to realize whether it is 16' or 160' they all require time and money.
