We are currently cruising our Islander Freeport 36 sailboat in Mexico. We have been extensively documentating our Islander Freeport outfitting for this adventure. We will now be reporting what of our outfitng is of value, what works and what is not of value.
Divers installed two through hulls for AC and WD
Before we left on the Baja ha ha on 10-29-12 in San Diego we had divers
come by and put in two under water through hulls(TH) with valves and add a scoop to a third,
the water maker one. The divers did a nice job. We got two 3/4 “ through hulls
installed. One for the 12000 btu Mermaid HVAC unit and one for the wash down
pump. We got them and the divers from a shop a few doors down from Marine Exchange that sells zinc's. I though I wrote this post befroe but could not find it while moving some pictures.
First they drilled a pilot hole with an air drill.
Almost needed exta long TH because the hull is so thick.
