Been trying to figure out how to stop automatic renewal of this membership. Anyone know? I’m not tech savvy enough to figure it out.

Been designing and working on a lazy jack system. I’m tired of the main going all over the deck. I’m mostly single handing so it’s a challenge. Got any ideas from your system?

Keel bolt torque

Hello, does anyone know what the keel bolt torque should be on a M 36 sloop? I'm replacing the original mast step with a stainless and want to make sure I don't  overtighten the keel bolt holding the mast step down

Wheel lock

Does anyone know where to purchase a wheel lock for the 36 pedestal?  I know the original manufacturer is out of business and Edson's parts will not work.   I don't have auto pilot on the boat so other than lashing the wheel down I have no way to lock the wheel.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Scupper hoses

Hi, George Sparr here.  After 40 years it's time to replace the scupper through hull fittings and valves.  I think the previous owner was upset with the boat yard that he had to replace the 2" hoses.  He thought that they should be crossed from the port side to the starboard valve.  What I have know is straight hoses from the scupper to the valve.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Also, thinking of replacing the two other through hull fittings while I have it out.  just don't know how long…

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.

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???
