I'm 5'5" so headroom won't be a problem I guess ;-). A regular 3 blades prop has been installed on this Isis. Of what I collected on her history
, she doesn't look like the Isis that want through all these troubled waters. But I'll double check. Also, the rudder
attachments, which could be a weak point on these boats, have been replaced and secured. The survey
found this boat to be in good condition (meaning, in their definition, nearly new with only minor cosmetic or structural discrepancies).
appears right for the sailing I intend to do : radar
, speed, GPS Garmin
map 492 (although I'm a bit old school
and carry and use paper maps for navigating), autopilot
model 14), wired (professionally rewired in the last 2 years) for 12 volts with 3 marine
batteries and a solar
panel, 130 and 140 genoa
on a Hood roller furler
, 2 mains setup for jiffy reeling (all sails
quote to be in good conditions), sheets
and halyards appearing to be fairly recent, winches, ground tackles (3) with chains and rods and other sailing equipments. What is missing is some security equipment
(flares, life jackets).
If she is half as good as she appears on paper, I guess she'll endure a lot more than me ;-). Well, we'll see in two weeks.
If I buy her, you'll probably read a lot more question on my parts, because it will be the first time I have to take care of a sailboat, aside sailing it ;-).
