Dad's boat

This is the boat my father had built in Maine using Airex foam sandwich construction. It was over built as most of dad's things were. It was " Free at Last" when dad owned her but was renamed "Islander" by her 2nd owner ..... a friend of dad's. The 4th owner just bought her after a VERY extensive re-fit. Islander has her original 6-71 Detroit Diesel engine in perfect condition. She had a fly bridge originally but was recently removed. The most noticeable part of her recent re-fit was not her engine rebuild but her conversion from a lobster trawler yacht to a serious fishing boat. I guess dad knew he'd be needing a tough boat as he got stuck on a rock in Mitchell Bay (Admiralty Is) so many times that the rock became known as "Henning's Rock" in the vicinity. Islander was always a great boat and I wish her the best in fishing and the best in care.
