Well that’s better then the landfill, and beats sleeping on the couch. I got an eye out for a bow rail.
I really see the allure of the mariner even though I haven’t sailed her yet.
The captain and 1st mate are anxious to go boat camping. So as time permits this lowly deckhand will be getting her ready for such excursions.
I doubt the Admiral will be spending nights on the mariner but she’ll be charting courses for sandy beaches across the great South Bay and trips to Fire Island I’ve been told.
Just thought I’d share what I slapped together in a couple hours with what I had left after a liquidation sale. Got caught up in a selling frenzy and when all was said and done I didn’t have a sailable sunfish!!!
A quick finish up on a patch and few coats of rustoleum. I made due with some cheap 1/4” line for the halyard and mainsheet. Sure made me appreciate the “good stuff”.
I think it looks good! The pool noodle piece over tiller is a quick clever way to keep it raised off the deck. And most importantly, you got out there!
I’ve got a few rivets if you need them for the cockpit trim. I couldn’t find them locally (1/8" Diameter x 3/16" Grip)
