I've got a model that has sharp edges around islands. I want to keep the sharp edges, and be able to select only the faces inside the island borders. Any ideas?

I'm able to select a single row around the island.

Then one more row.

Any more than that and the selection selects things outside of the island.

If you can easily select one row of faces around the island then the hard part of the issue is solved.

Just select that single face loop and hide it with H, then select one of the remaining faces at the center of the island and select all linked with Ctrl + L.

Unhide the hidden loop with Alt + H, and it should include it in selection automatically
