's message, "stanchion placement starboard side" on - Wednesday - 03/24/10 - 9:30pm
Well, I was a much younger man when I took those measurements, and they now look criptic to me too, but I ***think*** the answer is as follows...
Working from bow to stern, the first stanchion aft of the pulpit is placed in the same position on both port and starboard. Both P1 (first stanchion on the port side) and S1 (first stanchion on the starboard side) are located 64 3/4" aft of the pulpit bases.
The lifelines then pass around the outside of the main mast standing rigging, so there's a long run without a stanchion on both sides. P2 is placed at 106" and S2 at 120" aft of P1 and S1 respectively. The difference here is due to the gate on the starboard side, which is not repeated on the port side.
Does that answer?
I'm certain of the stanchion placement. On the 31, the stanchions fasten to the deck and toe rail. Though I'd not measured for the stanchions prior to the deck job, we replaced the old toe rail and so I had the fastener holes in the to rail to guide me.
Exactitude here is not necessary. You could eye ball nice even distances from one stanchion to another and be fine I think.

That damned admin -- Randall, - Thursday - 03/25/10 - 12:15am
His name is Bill Kranidis. He owned Carpe Diem (an M31) for many years and did more restoration work than most of us will have the courage to attack in this lifetime. He also did all the early research on Mariner origin and history, etc., as outlined on the MOA site. Oh yes, and he built the MOA site and has maintained it these eons with no help or remuneration from all of us cranky owners.
He does tend to get a little snarky when we call him "the site admin", though. Watch that. He may post photos of your boat upside down as his minor revenge. (Please know I'm kidding...)
Site updates are consistent--usually between 30 and 60 days out.
