1973 Mariner 40, Hull# 95
Owners: Alan & Karen Gallagher - Portland, OR - USA

We have been told we have the last hull made. (Hull #95) We purchased the SV Longboard and have been living, loving and steady working and maintaing her for about 4 years now. We are currently located in San Diego Ca. in the American Cup Harbor. We are preparing to leave this October heading south. thru Mexico - Central America - then west to the South Pacific. We love this girl with all our heart and souls. The previous owners had sailed her down the west coast to Costa Rica and back to San Dego on a 4 year voyage - They maintained her extremely well. We have some logs and info of previous owners and how all the upgrades and custom additions etc. were done. There's been alot of love and money and major upgrades and consistant maintenance and many hours invested in the Longboard over the years even before we purchased her - we have pictures aboard of her in Alaska by a Glacier to the coast of Costa Rica - We are very privaleged to be the owners of this fine vessel.
