Need Help! Starcraft Islander floor

Recommended Posts

Fellow Islander owners.......I have an 89 22fter that I'm currently replacing floors and foam on.  My question is, does anyone have ANY pictures or tips around the cabin wall area?  It looks to me like the entire cabin wall (supporting dash) has to come out??

 

Any help greatly appreciated.  Trying not to lose my entire season here.

Foam is a tricky thing. When I did my Islander there were areas that were water logged and other areas that were bone dry. I suggest that after you take off the floor boards you check if it is necessary to do the foam. As for the cabin. I just took the separating wall apart  and removed the side seats. When you pour the new foam,you should lay a layer of bubble wrap in the bottom. That way the foam does not stick to the bottom and there will be drainage under the foam. Also glue a plastic sheet to the floor boards,so the foam will be protected from water on the top. If you do not do this,the foam may be water logged again in just a few years.

Good luck with your floor job mine started as some soft spots by the dog house and ended up with a new transom. What a pita that was to change, me and a friend have about 20 hours each into it but we did end up only having to change the 2 floor pieces next to the dog house. 1 more thing if your transom is bad fix it before you ruin the drive coupler they are $500

Thanks for the info, but it is the cabin wall area that I'm specifically looking for info on.  Transom was already done two seasons ago. I'll check Iboats as well.

    • Need a GIMBAL

      Hello, I received eight plastic/vinyl  gimbals for a dual mount, Cannon  downrigger rod holder.The two rod holders attach to the gimbal. All these gimbals cracked to pieces, even the ones Cannons experts 🤣 sent to us. The other downrigger has an aluminum gimbal with no problems. Could someone please check their junk drawer for an aluminum one? (Gimbal). We can work out the details later.  Thank you, TFB

      My 2019 boat is up for sale and this one is LOADED! I love the white motor, not only does it look sweet, but its also SUPER easy to keep clean, I don’t know why they don’t just make all motors white… This one had a Bimini and full enclosure, super nice! The electronics are tip top, super clean sonar readings, the active imaging side scan and downscan is money. This boat is my first with the 15hp fuel injected Mercury Kicker. It starts on a dime and its nice to know you have that 12amp alternator
