Nice boats huh? I really like mine. You have two other I34 owners on your coast that are on CF. Look 'em up. Good resources. I think the lady on or near San Francisco Bay has the Wayfarer model.

Enjoy!

Anyways I wanted to post a few pics and please, tell me what you think of her. She's parked in her new homeport of Moss Landing, CA.







sweet boat! are you going to live on her or is it just for play??

Re: Pulled the Trigger on an Islander 34

An Aries is a plus for any boat that you plan to cruise. Just be aware that there is a pretty steep learning curve. Dont get discouraged if it wanders all over the place at first. Once you get used to it, you will love it. I have owned 3 Aries, and done about 10K miles with them. Best of luck with your new Love. ______Grant.

Re: Pulled the Trigger on an Islander 34

I've owned my 1968 Islander 34 since 1997 (Wayfarer design) and keep her down in San Pedro, CA. I've done a lot of upgrades over the years. I use her mostly for day sailing and for trips to Catalina. Below you'll find the link to lots of photos.

Re: Pulled the Trigger on an Islander 34

Congratulations on your 34. I bought mine in early 2013 and it was in terrible shape. I got a great price! Over the next year I replaced almost everything and added Garmin Radar & chart plotter, EPIRB & life raft.

Last year (2014) I sailed almost 3,000 nm including doing the Baha Ha Ha in October/Nov.

I love the boat and am now getting it ready for Hawaii. Check out my blog at
