Island Clipper

Added July 2006: Wanted: one Stainless steel dorade vent with mounting flange for a 1983 Island Trader 38

She is berthed in Havre De Grace, Maryland.  



Added January 2004: I live in Wilmington CA and own a Magellan 36 It is also the home of Sea Witch as she still sails here. You can't tell the differance at a distance of 1/4 mile. This suggests that the Island Trader and Magellan are indeed copies. Also, all of his designs feature conservative sail plans, high sheer and low free board.

Check out an article in Wooden Boat magazine, about 3 years ago, on Hugh. Very interesting. Also, nice site.
