We were looking at Islander 41 Freeports, they are very nice. We have heard/read however, that they are extremely prone to blister. You would need to do a bottom peel, and reglass to avoid them coming back. Or for a quick fix they can be fixed on an individual basis, but they usually will return. The other problem we have read about them is the hull
joints were substandard, with whatever bolts or screws they had available to join the two. They were not always careful with the sealant
placement, so usually you would need to remove the rail and then dig out all the sealant
, replace it with something like 5200 and some folks needed to scarf some wood to have something for the bolts to bite into. Use the blister/joint problem as a bargaining point for the survey
, and maybe you can get a good deal, knowing up front you will need to do some work!
