Subject: Looking for Mariner 31 or 32

If anyone knows where a Mariner ketch might be available, on the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, I'd appreciate a heads up. Would like to find one that is a project that I could work on at my pace. Thanks.

Carl

I know of one it's a 31' in sad shape. It's at the sub base in groton,Ct. if intrested I can find out the owner. I looked at it with the owner years ago. Hull is solid but the deck is in need of help. It's not a total lost cause. Take care,Jake.

I would have determine if this boat would be worth the expense involved to get it here (VA) and do the repairs; so if it still had masts, etc, and if they were in decent shape... I'd welcome the chance to speak with the owner. Thanks.

Sorry, I've seen the mast on the rack for the longest time, but they recently cut them up. Still interested?

Without masts and that far away, it may be best for me to pass on this one. Thank you very much for answering my post.

Jake, I think I would like to get in contact with the owner if you can locate him. Please answer on private email. Thanks

Thanks, but a little too far away.

[> [> [> 31 Mariner -- Gene Trentham, - Sunday - 10/16/11 - 10:34pm

I have a perfectly good mizzen, spreaders, and booms for both masts. Very reasonable.

Jake, if you can locate the owner in CT, I would like to talk with him after all. Thanks very much.

Hey Carl, would you consider a M40 ? I just saw this one on ebay. I think he has a blog of the work to this point. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1971-Mariner-40-Ketch-Project-Boat-/160667059984?pt=Sailboats&hash=item256880c710
Good Luck

[> [> Mariner 40 -- Carl, - Tuesday - 10/18/11 - 7:45pm

I saw the 40 listed on Ebay last night. A 40 is too big for me. I need something that I can single hand and the 31 or 32 will fit that requirement. Unfortunately, the 40 won't. Thanks for thinking of me and posting.

Thanks, but too far away and more than I can afford.

The sad shape mariner is probably going to be free. I'm talking to the sub base marina thurseday. If you want it all you have to do is remove it. I'm getting more imformation on it. I'll also take some photos.It's in sad shape alot of work to bring back. Hull is solid, but deck is rotten. Let me know if interested. Thanks,Jake.

Jake,

I have found another boat. Please do not bother to take pics, etc for me. I appreciate your assistance. That goes for all others who tried to help me find a Mariner. I didn't find a Mariner, but I did find a vessel that will be good for me. Thanks again, everyone.

[> free mariner -- Jake, - Thursday - 11/ 3/11 - 1:26pm

Hello. Carl, the mariner is free. All you have to do is haul her away. The Hull is solid.but, the deck is rotten. If you what to see her call me at 860-961-1475. Soon because they're going to trash it. Talk soon,Jake

[> [> Sad to hear -- Mark AEOLUS (sad), - Thursday - 11/ 3/11 - 4:22pm

It's sad hear that one of ours might have sailed her last voyage. I hope someone with a dream and some determination steps up in time. Any chance that us fellow Mariners might be able to buy some spare parts, if they're really going to trash her?
