Subject: Just bought a Mariner 40, Hull #71

Just bought Roseevedee today she is a Mariner 40, hull #71 out of Oriental NC. Needs a total refit, decks, cockpit,cabin sides and top, but she has charm. Sent off pictures and filled out the membership email so a page will be up soon I hope. Going to need lots of support as I go through this bringing her back into shape. Thanks to Randall and many of you who have posted how you did some of your projects. Without it I probably wouldn't have ventured to do this.VERY SCARY... I think my family is going to put me in the crazy house...Well I'm in good company.... Will keep posted to her progress.

Saw the pictures. Beautiful boat--underneath. And yep, lots of work, but you'll know her better than most guys know their wives when you're done.

Keep us posted...

Thanks to all of you and this site, if it were not, I don't think I would have had the courage to tackle this. So thanks a lot for the encouragement, information and help. Work on her will begin in the spring through summer.

I'm starting the same process only a little smaller.
Just think about when it's all done. It'll feel great.
At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Hi Terry,
We have a 40 as well,hull #85, Tivoli. We are moving South, hopefull crossing the Albemele Sound tomorrow. Should not be too long and we will be in Oriental soon, would love to see your boat. We have had Tivoli for 4 years, have done a lot, but as always lots to do. Good Luck...

Hi Mike,
I tried to email you but it bounced back, I got your email address from the owners page, must have changed. Anyways if your going to Oriental NC, be sure to stop at Whittaker Creek Yacht Harbor and see Knute the owner. He's a nice guy and he can show you where the boat is. I'm in Florida right now and won't be going back to Oriental till March. I'll be getting the boat prepped to be hauled out of the water in April or May. I live year round in Palm Beach County Florida but will be using Oriental as a get away spot. We have lots planned to get done this spring and summer. Would love to see Tivoli up close if your ever in the area. Could you send me an email with your current email adress? Would love to keep in touch, might have a few questions down the road since you have the same boat. Sure wish I could be doing what you both are right now but that will come in time. This is not going to just be a refit but a restoration with as much original as possable. Hope to hear from you soon.

I have included an updated email..We purchased Tivoli 4 years ago, she was in tough shape as well, no engine, plumbing, nothing. I put in a new Westerbeke and did a number of things to get her in sailing condition. She is far from complete, but we love her. Do not hesitate to contact me with questions. Another great source is Lawrence Killingsworth, he owns Ta Ata Ori, and without a doubt one of the most beautiful 40s you will ever see. Lawrence has helped me out tremendously.. Hope to talk to you soon and maybe we will be able to see your 40 in Oriental when we pass through

Good morning, Terry (and Mike and Paula, too) --

Well, best wishes for success with your restoration project, Terry. We didn't have as much to do when we bought Ta' Ata Ori, but we've done a lot -- as you can see from the photos on this web site.
I'm no expert in boat restoration -- other than I know it always costs more and takes longer than you think it will -- but I'll be glad to answer any questions and help out any way I can. Mike is more the expert in rebuilding a Mariner 40 from the keel up. But anyway, don't hesitate to ask. I can take pictures of Ta' Ata Ori and e-mail them to you, make measurements, etc., if such things might be helpful in your project.
Ahoy, Mike and Paula. I'm vicariously sailing with you down the coast. Sounds like you're in "full cruising mode" now and loving it. Good for you. Some of us are still sitting at desks under fluorescent lights, but, hey, "our day will come." Thanks for blazing the trail, or sounding the channel or whatever metaphor might work best.
80 inches of snow on the ground in Spokane, with freezing fog today, but I'm with you, tucked in behind the Outer Banks.

Fair winds, blue skies and all that nautical stuff,

-- Lawrence
