A Personal Note:


We have been proud owners of three (3) Island Packets over 15 years (IP31, IP35 & IP40. However the IP40, which was our home away from home – our “floating Condo”, was by far our Pride and Joy! From the many hours of planning and commissioning to experiencing wonderful adventures, meeting new people and enjoying the sights and sounds of many foreign ports – the center of it all was “RelationShip”.


Our goal and enjoyment was to have the best maintained and pristine boat anywhere. It was gratifying to  have three sailors an three different occasions ask us, during out trip South (October, 2000) if “RelationShip was a new boat.. She looks and sails like new! Toothbrush cleaning & polishing on the topsides and “Q-Tip attention below decks is the answer.


“RelationShip” might not be new – but like all good relationships, a great deal of Love and Caring has been given to and received from our “RelationShip”!!!   (signed,  Chuck and Jeanne)
