My Islander 34

If any of you are interested in following my progress on an Islander 34 that I have had for only a bit more than two weeks, you can check it out here.

Re: New Islander 34 owner in Everett, WA

hey all,
I too recently acquired a islander/yachtcraft 34. she was in the process of a fairly complete refit and i need to get some info on deck gear etc.
currently there are no genoa tracks. the traveler has been removed and a coachtop garhauer traveler system was purchased but is not installed. all the electrical has been redone by an abyc electrician. if anyone could give me measurements on tracks and placement i'd really appreciate it.

HUM. The I34 (old 60's to 72 ish model, not the 77 and newer mark II) has a 14' long boom and was designed for a end boom main sheet. Using a cabin top traveler might put too much load on the outboard boom section, specially on a uncontrolled jybe.

The original traveler was located aft of the aft coving between the coving and aft lasserette hatch. A Mark II perry design has a high aspect rig and came with a cabin top traveler, I think.

Re: New Islander 34 owner in Everett, WA

i think my boat is actually a yachtcraft 34 it's identical to the islander but was sold in kit form. it seems the original owner installed the traveler on the coach top. i'm not opposed to relocating it back to the designed location. I really need to get some pics and measurements for the genoa track placement though. i've seen some 34's with the tracks just inboard of the stantions and others inboard against the cabin. i'm not sure if one is correct or if the placement was for upwind performance etc. if someone could advise me on the correct rig i'd really appreciate it.

I have the yachtcraft version also. On mine, the Genoa track begins a foot behind the aft lower shroud and extends to within a foot of the sheet winch. Mine runs on the top of the wood cap rail, which limits how close I can point by maybe 5 degrees or so. Being in the SF bay area, I mainly use a 100% working jib. I have a 150, but I've never used it underway here.

Re: New Islander 34 owner in Everett, WA

I've owned my 1968 Islander 34 since 1997. I keep her at the Cabrillo Way Marina in San Pedro, CA. She's a fun boat to sail and very comfortable on a mooring in Catalina. Below, I show the link to a bunch of photos.
