Re: Project boats

Here's what I just picked up about a month ago. Shes a 1978 Islander Freeport 36, designed by Robert Perry. I bought her from the original owners, an elderly German couple that were having a hard time keeping her up and it became too much for him to sail. He was sailing solo to Catalina well into his 80s.

She was mainly needing a good scrubbing, some woodwork and refinishing, but she is a sturdy, solid cruising boat.

She's got a Perkins 4-108, a 4kw Gen-set, a 10gph watermaker, radar, and that's about it.

No GPS, no furling, no lazy jacks, no self-tailing winches.

I need to find a small dinghy so I can get around once I start getting out to the islands. The boat has an awesome swimstep, one of the features that sold me on the boat. That and the layout. Instead of a v-berth, there is a cabin amidship and the head is forward. Makes for a very usable layout, large salon, and a double-almost queen bed.
