Hello. I just became an owner of a mariner 36. My name is Kamil Dostalik and the # on the transom reads MYN3603IM80A.. I keep my boat in Racine, WI, and hauled it this Saturday. Unstepping the mast I see that the aluminium mast step is pretty worn…

  • Erik R If you decide to go shopping for quotes to make a new step, a welder should be able to make one for around $750.  a cnc shop maybe $1250-$1500.  unfortunately we are forced to pay whatever they want to charge the prices above would be fair pricing…

  • Erik R I tried to get someone to weld a new mast step for me but couldn't find anyone local interested.  the only person i got a quote back from wanted $2000.  i even tried Rig-Rite on the web. they are supposed to be the pro's for this sort of thing but…

Tory Salvia commented on geoff ferrell's article Mariner 36 Ketch Kittiwake for Sale
"I know this boat well. The owner cared for her and did many updates. This cutter ketch offers many sail options from jig & jigger to genoa, staysail, and main plus a mizzen blooper."

Older video issue. Looks like we have several popular older videos that are not streaming. Looking at the embed code, they are from Youtube. I've contacted Ning tech support to see how I can make these stream.

Does anyone know the packing size for the rudder post? I have a M36 sloop, the top of the packing gland is the three bolt type with the bottom half fiberglassed into hull.

Was the hull number on the original main sail under the m-36 logo. Hull out tomorrow. Time to get ready for varnish season. Also have new set of glow pugs to install. Not at all happy with the way the universal 5432 starts. Not reliable. Runs great after and if you can start it.

M36 11 Keel Bolts?

was reading a pamphlet where its mentioned the M36 has 11 keel bolts.  i count 10 in mine.  three in aft bilge, four in central bilge, two at mast step and a single bolt in small bilge between port head and starboard sink.  is there an 11th hidden or was that a typo?  there is a long span between the mast step bolts and the forward most bolt but there is no access to that area without removing the floor.

M36 hulls cored or solid?

was reading Sparkle Plenty's blog and he said he encountered balsa core when grinding the hull to check for moisture.  i was under the impression the hulls were solid fiberglass.  did they use coring in strategic places on the hull?

Keel Stub Construction

Hi everyone,New MYOG membern here.  Im proud owner of Mariner 36 hull #45 Dulcinea.  I have a potentially serious structural issue with my keel stub and need to try and get as much info as i can so i can decide what repairs i might need to make and how im going to approach them.  my boat has a thin separation line at the keel/hull joint which isn't surprising given its age and probable neglect before i purchased her.  to remedy this, at first i figured i'd haul out, drop the keel, check the…

Wood Type

This is probably going to sound foolish but if you don't know you have to ask. What type of wood is used on the toe rail and cockpit trim? As long as I'm here what type is in the cabin?  We love our M36. She is fast and comfortable just a few little issues to work through.
