Integrity 386(2005)

After 3 years searching we settled on a 2005 Integrity 386. The hull is based on the old(unsold) Island Gypsy 36/ Halvorsen moulds. The extra 2ft 6" is from incorporating the swimstep into the hull, generally the boat resembles the IG36 it is based on. The interior is redesigned, updated, and way more accommodating. The bow cabin is generous, there is a 2 bunk second cabin(or cupboard) Unlike most current Integrity models, it has a flybridge. There is almost no exterior teak.

Power is 2 210hp Cummins BTs with 698 hours at survey, genset is an Onan 7KW EQD with 135 hours recorded. The engine room is more spacious than the big brother Integrity 426(think IG40) we didn`t buy. There is a bowthruster. Near 80 hours were added by the delivery guys who brought it up from Melbourne over 6 days at a stately 8.75 knots. They took refuge from the weather twice and say it handled rough conditions well.Carries 750L of fuel and 750L of water.

Previously a Sydney boat ("Joy of Kathryn"),it was sold to Melbourne,now back in Sydney.There are things to correct over time but nothing vital.We will probably keep the current name.

Still looking forward to our first cruise, waiting on restrictions easing.
I tried attaching some pics, from the same file as the new avatar, but they were "invalid".

Indeed, good to see you're finally getting to grips with her Bruce. Having the ban on boating eased this coming weekend will no doubt be music to your ears. Now, don't forget to edit your signature as well. Oh, yes, better sort out the issue re the photos not uploading. We need - nay - must have, photos..! Pilou will be able to help you with that if you can't figure it out. Bon voyage...

You did a great job in the search and selection process. Your serious and thorough hunt is well worth emulating.

Thanks for the kind words. We`ve not yet got an easing of restrictions but it should come next week.

Re pics. They show as JPEG in the camera but download,first time ever,as NEF into the laptop. TF says they are invalid,presently I can`t load them.

NEF ? So your camera is a NIKON.
NEF is Nikon format similar to RAW format.
You can’t load Nikon NEF format pics to TF, you must convert first from NEF to JPG / JPEG.

XNVIEW Freeware will do the job for you if your OS is Windows.

Do you still have our email address ? Send some pics, I can convert for you.

There you go Bruce. I knew Pilou would know.

However, there is another way. Just swallow your SLR camera pride, and take the shots on your iPhone or Samsung, whatever...like the rest of us do. Well, most of us anyway. They are really quite good. They have so many pixis the pics come out comparable with your SLR. Really..! They upload to websites very easily, as long as you hold them the correct way up, is all.

Oui elle est magnifique vraiment !
Island bed in forward cabin, that’s great. Easer access to the flybridge than on your former IG 36’ Europa.
I love the helm.

Félicitations Bruce. When is the christening party scheduled ? Sorry I don’t recall the date. Don’t bother with the bottle of champagne to break on the bow, I will bring it, or perhaps a bottle of Saint Hilaire from Limoux since it’s your favorite ?

2 more pics, a bit like the others. Everything else is in NEF, I think a new memory card is the cause. So I threw in the sulphur crested cockatoo which visited recently, there were 2 and I could hand feed them. Big birds, big beaks, but gentle.

Very nice! I like the helm next to the pilot house door - it makes line handling easier :-)

Well done Bruce, I see you are staying in the extended IG family. The lower helm station looks very flamilar indeed. No external teak ,lucky you.

I will keep an eye out for you on the water(when we are finally allowed out). Where do you plan to stow the dingy?

Cheers,

Andy

Not trying to waylay this thread. Boating restrictions? What is the purpose? If you go out for 15 days, come back, clean and health to your dock, the 15 day quarantine starts again once you touch dirt. It's a never ending circle.
