"Cactus Tree"
1971 Mariner 31, Hull# 68
Owners:Doug Wilson - Kailua-Kona, HI -USA


Aloha, I bought "Cactus Tree" ex. "Rag Doll" in San Pedro California. I am currently working on the boat and will be cruising California until October 2006.
Will provide updates and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for other owners.

Thanks, Doug.

Alohas Bill,
Cactus Tree and Doug are in La Paz, BC Sur Mexico. Left Los Angeles November 10th, took my time coming down the coast.
Had 35knts SE wind 140 miles South of Turtle Bay for 22 hours, middle of nowhere, hove to, and the boat took it well. Stopped in Magdalina bay and Cabo San Lucas then had to wait out North wind for 18 days till I could get to La Paz.
Plan on staying here for a month then will decide where to go, I have every confidence in the boat, have had few problems.
Having a great time and enjoying Mexico.
Doug and "Cactus Tree"


Alohas Bill,
I spent the summer in La Paz re-varnishing and painting the interior of Cactus Tree. Can't seem to post pictures, maybe you can put them on for me.
Departing for Puerta Vallarta in a couple of days.
