Islander 36

I'm looking for any information I can get on this boat concerning problems with the main bulkhead and how it is tabbed.

I'm looking at two of them one of which already failed an insurance survey due to problems with this bulkhead. Is it an expensive repair?

The boat that failed has a new 2008 engine in it, and it's the shoal draft model.

Mast step is another issue in combination with BH. I have owned a 32 footer and a 26 foot islander and these are a week spot but are fixable depending on your work ethic. Price matters!

Second part of my answer did not make the post. The mast step can be an issue. Chain plates are lightly tabbed to hull. But the 36 is an excellent boat if it has been maintained. Shallow bilge is a draw back in weather floor damage is a concern to look for. Regards
