1971 Mariner 40, Hull# 60
Owner:Michael Marion - Salem, IN. - USA
"Raibow Chaser" may still be for sale.A note from Bill Kranidis.......I received an email form Michael on the boat's update.
The boat is in the condition as the
pictures on the site when purchased and no further work other than motor and
drive removed for rebuilding, interior doors, drawers, etc; removed and stored
in dry storage. The boat has good used aluminum masts, electric toilet with eletra san, and wooden wheel. It had the worm steering with an auto
pilot unit installed. The sails are in
like new condition. The boat is complete if anyone needs parts before she
goes to the deep.
I bought the boat in Sault Ste. Marrie, MI last November. It is a total
rebuild project. The decks, cabin, floor, head, hatches, ports, motor/trans
and rudder have all been removed. I moved it to southern IN where I have
started the process of getting it ready to reconstruct. The hull is in great
shape but the rest is up for grabs. I recently bought a new wheel, mizzen
mast and boom. The engine and transmission are in the process of being rebuilt.
I will post pictures as work is progressed.
