03.30.15 - Stuart Marine has been manufacturing the Mariner since 1983, and although the output is nowhere near the quantity of O’Day Mariners, the quality is just as exceptional. Pearly Mae is a 1989 Stuart Mariner and was recently re-sold to a new owner after a number of years in Union, Maine (where the picture was taken). She is loaded with goodies including a Coast Guard “safety package” made available through the manufacturer with items such as anchor and rode, life vests, paddle, pail, sponge, flare kit and horn. What a great-looking boat!

03.30.15 - Narrasketuck Yacht Club, home to one of the Mariner racing fleets, has a brand new website. While there isn't a ton of info, it's updated with the new 2015 schedule and is a big improvement.

2015 Notice of Race03.30.15 - The Notice of Race for the 2015 Mariner Nationals has been posted. It will be held at Brant Beach Yacht Club this year during the week (August 19-21). 

Notice to Mariners 03.30.15 - The spring edition of the Notice to Mariners newsletter of the Mariner Class Association will be published in a day or so. It's a whopper with 24 pages, so become a member today to receive it and all past editions. 

Mariner Class Association Facebook Page03.09.15 - The Facebook page of the Mariner Class Association just received its 100th "like" today, a new milestone! It has also received eight reviews, all five-star. Would you expect anything different?

2015 "Picture of the Week" page01.14.14 - Made a link to the new 2015 "Picture of the Week" page. I also updated the information for the Southeast Connecticut Mariner Fleet as Eric Flower, #1871, has rejoined the Fleet after more than a year away due to work obligations.

Haulout, 201410.31.14 - Added the final two pictures to the 2014 Sailing page. She is now at her garage in Northford awaiting routine maintenance and a few winter projects I have planned.

Control Lines Led Aft10.22.14 - Added a new Project Page for leading sail control lines back to the cockpit. A number of people have asked me how I do it, so I made a page about it.
