pictures of Bimini

Does anyone have some pictures of full enclosures of Bimini tops on an IG. I want to have my canvas replaced and would like some idea as to what I'm looking for.

My wife and I are looking at several 32's and would like to get some information from anyone that has glassed the decks and gotten rid of the teak.

The newer model IG32's don't have teak decks. I don't know from what year on, but at least from 2000/2001. Ours certainly doesn't.

I did it late 2012, on an IG 36, a major costly job, whatever you replace it with, mine took 7 weeks. Not sure what you want to know but suggest you start by looking at the thread <IG Teak Decks>. Main motivation is fixing leaks. Sometimes recaulking and replugging may be enough, but on older boats most likely not.
Be prepared for substrate repairs. The teak is partly decorative/cosmetic, the real deck in the form, most likely, of a fiberglass-teak block-fiberglass sandwich, with every chance of rot in the teak. I was lucky,I had foam sandwich decks, unheard of on IGs. You may get a quote for the deck,but not for the hidden substrate defects. I held my decision on paint or teak or combination until the defects were revealed.
You decide what to replace it with, more teak or painted non slip, the latter is much cheaper and faster, but you lose some character and it gets hot underfoot. Mine is a combination,now a popular choice.
Where you select paint finish you need 2 layers of fiberglass to replace the teak, but one layer for new teak. The surface will likely need a lot of fairing and leveling. Being thinner than teak affects things on or adjacent to the deck, eg you replace the piano hinging on the aft lazarette hatches with recessed hinges, and fit feet under the flybridge steps. New teak is commonly thinner than old teak.

Sunvale, somewhere (I can`t find it now) you asked about fuel tank rust defects. My starboard tank had a rust hole adjacent to the filler tube. The rust was treated and the area epoxied with fibreglass mat over the defect.
My bimini looks like yours, but I think you want to enclose the area in clears. Get a couple of quotes and talk it through with the guy, be there when he inspects it to talk through the best way.You could consider with replacing the existing top a fixed f/g solid roof section.

Laminating schedule Island Gipsy 36

Does anyone posses the laminating schedule of the Island Gipsy 36 build in 1995?
I am busy with an (severe) osmose treatment on a hull and not sure about the original lay-up.

Can't help with the question ... but this is not just a boat pox (osmosis blisters), it's the next stage, a full blown delamination. Looks bad ... good luck!

You could try Mark Halvorsen in Sydney Australia. If he can`t help he may be able to put you in contact with the designer Harvey Halvorsen.

Looks like somebody glassed a wood boat and didn't prep. Can't imagine an original layup doing that.

Ataraxia,
Gon'na tell us about your PL?

I am currently looking to purchase an IG32 1984 with a Lehman 120. Where can I find a pdf of the owner's manuals or even some brochures of the boat from that time to see what was the original equipment it came with? I have search the Internet and sent an email to Australia from their website but no answer yet.

What address in Australia did you email? The only person who might be able to help is Mark Halvorsen, IG no longer operates as such.
Manuals do come with the boats, but getting replacements or copies could be a big ask. Perhaps someone could copy theirs, wait and see who else responds.

I have an owner's manual for our 2001 IG32. Frankly, its not very informative, although not completely useless. The manuals for the specific equipment installed on the boat, much of which equipment was added to the boat after the owner's manual was printed, is much more useful. Still it's nice to have the owner's manual as it's part of the "provenance".

If you have it as a pdf my email is pisern@yahoo.com. Every little bit helps, it is a start and I really appreciate it. Do you have the marketing brochure or promotional material for the IG 32? Thank you very much for help, time and attention.

I forgot to ask, in 2001 what engine was standard on the IG32? Approximately what year did they switch out from the Lehman?

Don't have it in .pdf form and I'm sorry but I'm not up to scanning the whole thing. Also, don't have any marketing brochure or promotional material.I do have a .pdf of a 1995 Powerboat Reports comparison of the IG32 and GB32 sent to me by Codger that you can see here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwU...ew?usp=sharing. I've also sent the link to you via email.

Our 2001 has a Cummins 6BTA 5.9 330. A friend who just sold his 2000 had a Cummins 6BT 220. Don't know when the Lehman was phased out.

If you post the manual in a PDF format I will download. Do you have any old marketing brochures?

Thanks for your help and attention.
