Hi Bruce, I have been all over this website reading your posts over the past several weeks. I just today purchased a 1982 36 IG Europa, single screw, in Long Beach California. Yours is a twin screw right? I have issues getting the boat to run up to 2,400RMP WOT, it maxes out at 2,000, I have tried two different size props, a 24x16 3 blade and a 24x17 4 blade. What are you running your yours. PS I have a Lehman 2715E with a Warner gearbox, 2:1
No,it`s an Island Gypsy 36 Europa, a product of Joseph Kong in (Hong Kong) & Halvorsen (then a long established Australian boat-builder). I think there is a US Mariner, but we had Australian designed and built Mariner Cruisers( lots were built), run by Bill Barry-Cotter, who went on to found Riviera (which he sold) and now runs Maritimo, building big volume planing big cruisers. There are some USA IGs on the Forum.
