Great Forum !

Hi, I'm new here. This site looks like its got more info then I can intake for a long time. I just sold my C@C 30 I had her for 8 years. She was a great boat, the (Red Witch). My new boat is a Islander 36, It has lots of new things for me to play with and learn, Ive only had the Islander for 3 months, 2 months on the hard having a new bottom, Blisters shaved 2 coats of new glass and 3 coats of barrier cote. She was forgotten about in a holding yard for years with a bad bottom.

A fellow Islander 36. Welcome welcome.

From the issues with blisters, I'm going to shoot from the hip here and guess that your boat is newer than 1973.

Be happy to trade notes with you on the Islander 36. Minggat has undergone lots of updates and upgrades. Still a work in progress of course. She has been my home in between overseas assignments since 2000. My wife and I lived aboard for 4 years straight during part of that.

Welcome once again.

Glad you are here. As you learn more about your boat and go through some of the process, you should keep us posted.

Yep shes a 1978, Past owner started grinding on the bottom blisters and gave up, He about gave her to me, but the bottom was about $8k to have repaired, I was able the replace all the thu-hauls when is was on the hard.

"About gave it" to you plus $8K tells me that you are waaaaaay ahead of where I was when I aguired mine. And I don't want to talk about what I've put into her since then. I just consider it making payments to someplace other than the bank, and on my terms, however bad they have been.

Be encouraged.
