1971 Mariner 31 Hull#109
Owner: Joshua Mitchell - Cambridge,MD - U.S.A
My name is Joshua Mitchell. I am the owner of Isabella, an M31 (Hull #109). For the last seven years I have been slowly performing a major upgrade on Isabella. With any luck, I will be finished at the beginning of June, at which point I will have a number of pictures to send along.
Most notably, I believe that Isabella will be the first Mariner to be converted to an electric-drive propulsion system (see attached picture). She will also have a proto-type diesel 48B generator on board.
My conclusion over the years has been that the M31 is one of the finest little sailboats around, and that we should all begin to think about propulsion refits that will suit our little beauties well into the 21st century.
