' />I own and sail an Islander 37 sloop named Wandering Star. I have lived aboard her for twelve years primarily around the San Francisco bay. Her skiff is an Avon 10.2 RIB for getting to and from the beach. Other cool gear includes my Monitor wind vane and solar panels. The solar panels keep up with the electrical consumption. Cabin warmth is by Dickenson diesel heater, ships’ power a Perkins 4-107 diesel engine. Ground tackle includes a CQR plow, a Bruce, and a Danforth anchor. A Simpson-Lawrence 555 Sea Tiger windlass makes short work of anchoring chores. Sail inventory includes 3 jibs, two reef points in the main, and a spinny.
