Anybody know how to get taken off of the automatic charge for this site? I have been trying to find out. I just got charged $10.00 again for another years worth of this site.

Stuffing box nuts not budging on M36

I'm sure (I hope) others have found solutions over the years for turning the stuffing box nuts on M36 without moving/removing the engine.I have tried (although not doggedly) on and off to loosen then up for the past 5 or so Springs during pre-launch maintenance. Of course W-40, PB blaster, rust fighters, other brands, etc - no luck. There is just no space for large plumber type wrenches or wisegrips (thus ne real leverage to speak of) and the nuts seemed to be fused up from old age. Afraid to…

M36 Chainlocker Door?

I'm curious if all the M36's have the giant hinged door over the chain locker on deck?  I'm trying to figure out how the hell im going to mount a windlass.  The giant door goes almost to the very edge of the wood bow roller assembly and almost to the very edge of the deck.  It doesnt seem thick or sturdy enough to mount a windlass to.  There is absolutely no room to mount a windlass on my boat except aft of this giant door which would put it directly over the forward part of the v-berth.  If i…

Floor support repair

Hi, can anyone tell me how to remove these floor boards.  It looks like there are screws holding it down but not sure.  I need to repair the support at the bulkhead under floor to the front of the hatch.  I think this area got flooded when the sink valve was left open and water was pumped up to the sink when the boat moving through the water on a port tack.  The floor is vey soft in this area.  Thanks George

Throttle/Shift Cables

Sitting in my living room with a mug of coffee and ten degrees outside. I'm thinking about adjusting or fixing the detente on my eng/trans controls. With the boat 50 miles from home I can't remember what the cable arrangement is. Thought I would try and see if anyone has some photos or ideas. The detent for neutral is really hard to feel and the idle/stop is not that noticeable either. Thought I could do some armchair engineering because I'm not going outside.

Strut loose

Now that the boat is on the hard, it's  not the prop on my m36 but the strut that sustained damage on our way south on the Mississippi. It just got loose enough to effect the movement of the drive shaft to the point that the dripless shaft seal wore out and water started to come in... I can barely make the strut movement visible by pushing on it sideways but when the drive shaft is in gear it moves..  Does any one have a blue print or an idea how the strut is attached to the hull? Do any of you…

Refrigeration Questions

I have a 1980 Mariner 36 frozen in 1985.  It has the original "ice box."  Can anyone tell me what kind of insulation it has and has anyone replaced or beefed up the insulation,  I can't find anyway to look inside without cutting the fiberglass,  which I hesitate to do...I want to add refrigeration and any suggestions would be helpful.

Swim platform

One of the first projects/additions I wanted to do to Kato was have an easy means of getting on board from the water. To me, there was no other choice then a swim platform. The idea of it folding up out of the way lessened the length of the boat and less chance of mishaps when docking or maneuvering.…

Update Owners List

Hello Tony,

 

Do you think you might have some time to update the owners list.

 

In my case I purchased "Eagol" Mariner 36 , hull 50, in September (14th) of 2020 and Laura Pople is no longer the owner.

Also, unofficially I am Changing the name, (trying to respect Neptune here) which is not yet complete,  but how can we update these Items in future???

Thanks

 

Shawn Mendel
