Exclamation Specs

Hi,

I have a Freeport Islander Ketch rig 41' (1976 model,) and I have checked everywhere on where to find the specs for it. I have the manual, but it does not show me:

Turnbuckle sizes

Stay lock sizes

and Rigging sizes

My masts fell down (do not ask how) and i am wanting to get them back up. Please help me with this situation.

Trenton

I think you'll be needing a rigger. I'm not aware of many boat specs that get as detailed as you request. The choices open to you today are far greater than in 1976. You can easily find better methods of fastening your wire than were available back then. Once you can establish the wire sizes the connectors will easily follow.

You could do well to examine the chain plates since if original would be worth replacing now as well. It's also a great time to re wire the mast and fix up all those issues.

I think that Robert Perry may have designed the Islander Freeport. Bob offers a consulting service, and may be reached at:

I did the rig on that boat but I don't recall doing rigging specs. I suepct Islander just went with the original I-40 version that preceeded the 41 specs for rigging sizes.

But I'm here if you would like to take advantage of my consultation service. I can quickly give you rigging specs for your boat.

Flafrank: The I-29 is not my design so I'd have to se a pic to identify your boat. I don;t recall an I-29 but 1965 is a long time before I worked with them so it just might be an early Islander.

There is a Yahoo group for the I41F. They are a great group and someone will certainly help. Unfortunately, I'm 1200 miles from mine and won't return until the fall. You can try this URL. You'll have to register but it's well worth it. Excellent resource.

thanks .the rest of the story

thanks for the feed back.as i have found out it actually was a 68 I29 from the costa mesa california group with glassman or the glass fiberglass company..in one of the lapworth forms hull#140..owned by Jim M for the last 20 years but left to being unkept..the atomic 4 gas hadn't been run in 10 years,but i did get the fly wheel to turn..no black mold but the one bulk head i call it a stay or chain plate to the spreader of the mast had water leaked into it and had rotted..it has been in fresh water most of its time so not really in bad shape but ...i am so torn to turn away from this project..but the gas isn't my first choice..but the islander sounds like a wonderful sailer..he wanted $2000..it did have two sails in very good shape which are probably worth quite a little..so still looking but up north here on lake ontario the season is already gettin short to finish a project and be headin south..would really like one of those Perry boats..walked away from a morgan 302 last fall down in st pete for $4000 with a wonderful soundin univeral deisel//always wonder about the one that got away..thanks again you all are a wonderful help..
