Re: Opinions on Mariner Ketches

Oh, and by the way. It took 22 days to sail her from Hawaii to the Straits of Juan de Fuca in Washington State so she was not a dog for her short waterline, clipper bow and long bowsprit.
kind regards,

Nice site. I like the boat. I thought you might like to know about the above problem. It happens when you click on the s/v SEREIA

Re: Opinions on Mariner Ketches

The reason links are often not found on the forum is because, in the first few minutes after a link is posted, many forum members click on it and overload the available bandwidth for a typical blog server.

Notice the time interval between Butler's and CaptainKJ's posts.

When this happens, most often success can be achieved simply by waiting a few minutes and trying again.


edit, I get the same results CaptainKJ, ( a broken internal page link), so in this case my comments don't apply, though at other times they do.

Re: Opinions on Mariner Ketches

Not trying to get to technical. First I like the blog and the web site and the boat. Actually LOVE the boat. Probably being too helpful but I read lots of sites and have found owners do like to hear about the little problems with the site as no one can proof read a whole site and keep adding to it every week with out mistakes happening.

The link is http://www.svsereia.com/home.htm

and it should be

Welcome to s/v Sereia

easy fix for the administrator to do. He probably never even new it

Re: Opinions on Mariner Ketches

Good boats, sail well, likes lots of wind.
Lack of a mast post, under the Main mast means check for sagging under the main mast.
This design, opened the area between the cabin and head.
Many had a support beam installed under the mast and it was bolted to the forward bulkheads, be sure to check this area, and under the floor for rot.
Love mine, comfortable, mostly dry, some small leaks from the toerails.
In heavy wind, it's nice to just use the jib and Mizzen to sail the boat, don't really need to reef.
