I'm going to jump in here since I'm looking at a '76 Islander 28 locally. I'm new to sailboat ownership
and the Islander so any info anyone can share, problems to watch for, etc will be appreciated.
I noticed a fair amount of spyder cracking on the on deck
, but it feels solid to walk on is this an issue? should I plan on some kind of repair for this?
Finally - I'm confused about two "half-circle" openings at gunwale along the cockpit
- two on each side, about 18 inches apart. Should have taken a picture but didn't. any thought what those are?
