There's a new member of the Executive Board of the Mariner Class Association! Ted Penfield, from Concord, Massachusetts, has joined the Board as the new VP Communications and is very enthusiastic about the position. He writes, "A couple of years back (2015), I was thinking about getting another sailboat for when I wanted to go sailing rather than powerboating. So, I did a fair amount of research and really liked the O’Day Mariner. I bought my 1976 Mariner (#3224) from a guy who had it in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee. It looked to be in good shape, and it came with a nice galvanized trailer too! I found the Mariner Class Association online, joined once I got the boat, and have really enjoyed the forum and the wonderful resources available within for this great sailboat."
