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.
Surf racks got dropped off for cutting\welding - got them back from the weld shop
Some of the weld\fabrication shop. This shop does a lot of Marine SS work.
Here's the sign from when the building was being built.
They are putting some finishing touches on now.
When we had the racks made we forgot to tell Sebastian to make them out of "polished SS tubing" and we got them back as brushed 1" tubing. Not a big deal. Here, when they cut and welded the racks up, they then buffed them out and they became "polished" SS racks. Just how we wanted them originally!😎
We left enough room in the racks so the SUP could be pushed out at the bottom and we could work with the spring line cleat. Also the three fins and board can slide out through the racks when launching or retrieving the SUP.
