Thanks for the compliments, Bill, and mostly thank you for posting the new photos and keeping the website so Bristolfashion.
A sailing friend of ours was out on his boat one sunny afternoon and he took 153 shots from all angles of us going to weather in about 15 - 20 knots of breeze. (I didn't send 'em all in to you, though.)
A few weeks later, in light air, he took about 700 shots of us flying the spindrifter, mizzen stays'l (both black and gold), main and mizzen, for a total of 1978 sq feet of sail. I'll send you a couple of those.
So, yep, I would enthusiastically endorse your going out and getting a Mariner 40. They take some tender loving care, but wow, are they fun to sail.
