Well there she is my very own O’day Mariner. The boat needs a little work. Of course when I bought it, it was usable other than a broken mast. But as I often do with projects I decided to ” fix it right” which meant I went whole ass in to the project instead of fixing the boat as I went along. This approach of fix it all right the first time only works if you have a lot of time on your hands. But I wanted to post this so I have some motivation to get back at it. Get it painted and install the used mast I bought. First priority is to get my workshop in order followed my getting my Fathers Ericson in the water for the summer. But I think this summer I’m going to try and make a dent on the too do list for the mariner. It helps to have great inspiration like Nate Bayruther and his Orion project http://www.mariner1922.com/
Hopefully many more posts to come on this project.
