Help Support IPYOA

If you would like to support IPYOA and IPphotos, please use this donate button below to contribute. Your donation helps to pay for: domain names, multiple web servers, SQL database server, yearly software subscriptions, security patches and paid programming support. Currently, we are working with a new programmer to finally integrate the 11,500 photos from into IPYOA. We will be building the same photo categories and same structure as IPphotos. Once imported and completed, we will have nearly 20,000 IPY owner photos in this web site! NOTE#1: The IPY factory does not pay us for these services. NOTE #2, Whiteaker Yacht Sales donates yearly to support our efforts and we really appreciate that!

We, Hayden and Radeen, provide the constant yearly financial support, design and management for these projects simply as Island Packet Owners since 1991. We provide this service simply out of the JOY of IP ownership.

Thank you for your support. We really appreciate this.

Hayden and Radeen

Howdy Mark,

We're about to meet with a couple local shops to tackle our arch and swim step and really like yours. If you don't mind could you share how you tackled the transom step? How is this mounted, did you remove the eater heater for access or go another route?

hayden created a new topic ' 2015 Annapolis IPYOA NOON Pit Beef Luncheons' in the forum. 2 days ago

WOW, what a turnout we have been having at the 2015 IPYOA Noon Pit Beef Luncheons on the roof deck of the Fleet Reserve. (See image)
This is an informal gathering of the Island Packet Fleet, that has now been going on for years. We simply stop by the IP Booth, visit with the IP dealer, look at the new yachts, get an IP Sticker, (if the dealer brings them) and then go to the Fleet Reserve, grab lunch, and head up to the Roof Top Deck and look for other IPY owners. If we all have on IP stickers, orr IPY hats, or gear, then it is easy to connect and find each other. We gather around the tables, share some news, meet, chat, learn, and share IP stories. It is informal and very fun. This year we had an average of 20 to 30 Island Packet Owners at each od the daily luncheons. What a great time. Bill Bolin even stopped up Friday, and visited with several new IP owners. That was very nice to have IPY factory support at any of these daily luncheons. By around 2-3 PM we would all dissipate and go our own way into the massive Annapolis boat show.

Here is a summary of the attendees per day: Thank you to all who made the effort to stop in and connect with other owners. It was great to meet so many IP owners.

This is about 74 unique Island Packet Yacht Owners, and I am proud to have meet you all. We really need more time to visit and to share. Thank you again.
Maybe next year, we can coordinate better with the local IPY dealer to bring the famous IPY stickers, These provided all of us with FREE advertising for the Island Packet Product Line as we walk around the show. What a great idea.

hayden replied to the topic '11,500 IPphotos moving to IPYOA' in the forum. 1 week ago

I agree, integration is the goal. Job #1, integrate IPphotos, 11,500 photos into the 5,500+ photos here saving that archive from those that tried to delete it.

I recommend that you post these links for ALL our IP sites and help every one promote our IP groups.
Post these links and share them please on the other site as well, then every one knows all our sites.

The Island Packet Factory Site

The Island Packet Yacht Owners Association:

The Island Packet Yacht Owners Facebook Group

The Island Packet Photos site (soon to be deleted Dec 10, 2015 and moved here)

The Island Packet Homeport Site

Please see if you can share these links on your forum as well. I dare you!

Thank you.



Rich Westlake replied to the topic '11,500 IPphotos moving to IPYOA' in the forum. 1 week ago

As you know from earlier dialogue, I am all for the integration you describe. My concern has been for the fragmentation of the IP community due to the proliferation of competing options. For example, the Facebook community is new, and has brought new "faces" to the conversations, but those who are loyal to the earlier communities will never meet this part of the fleet. I'm all for outreach, but it would be nice if we could find a way to integrate the entire community of IP loyalists.

Rich Westlake replied to the topic 'New Site Upgrade for MOBILE' in the forum. 1 week ago

I too use the site primarily in mobile mode. Love it! Knowing what posts are new is important to me, and I don't think I have always seen the "new" in green. Very helpful. Thanks for what you've done!

Ian Meikle replied to the topic 'IP 380 Leaking Holding Tank' in the forum. 1 week ago

Chess & Karen,
Great progress and a really great detailed report.
Your description of the project will make it a lot easier for me once I start the tank removal.
My time line to start is end of October currently working through an in mast roller furling main sail jamming issue. Replacing main and changing some of the rigging.
Also updating some of the Espar hydronic heating system. Like you I do most of the work myself.
Thank you again for the tank update.
