"Mary Ellen"
1969 Mariner 31, Hull# 15
Owner: Raimund Gerstner - Cartagena, Colombia


First of all many thanks for your website.
I purchased "Mary Ellen" 1999 from my friend Mike Johnston,who lived on board and sailed her many years in California,la Baja,Panama and the Caribbean.
I just have seen beautiful "Yia Sou" on the owners page, which I found some years ago in a marina in Crete,Greece and decided to apply for a membership too.  Our sailing area is the west carribbean, panama ,colombian north coast  and the san blas islands.
Most of the time she lies in the Club Nautico marina in Cartagena giving me fun with continuous woodwork, maintenance and some improvements..
I am a german and living for more than 40 years in colombia.
To get better access to the engine I enlarged the cabin and put the mizzen on the top.As my back is getting older I also installed a windlass
She is the boat I really love and enjoy to keep her in good shape.
Thanks again
