1971 Mariner 32- Hull#40
Owners: Robert M. (Mike) and Polly Blank
Home port: Chetco River, Brookings-Harbor Oregon, USA
We purchased Momentum from Peter and Linda Casale in November 2000.
From the log book it looks like they had her since 1994. She had originally
been named St. Elmo’s Fire with the hailing port of Deer Harbor, WA. At
some point she we renamed Momentum out of Orcas Island, WA. They took her
to Victoria on a short cruise so she has been in international waters.
Since we bought her in the middle of the winter, we had her trucked down
to us at Brookings, Oregon. Before she was put in the water Mike repainted
the bottom. While the masts were off, Mike refinished them in their natural
wood. We stepped the masts when our sons were home at Christmas, 2000.
This summer we plan on repainting the deck and refinishing the
brightwork. In the future, when we retire, we plan on taking her to the
East Coast and cruising the Inter-Coastal Waterway.
