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 and the attachmenr for the rod going to the deck has rotted away. I thought attaching a thin stainless plate on the bottom of the mast step, through bolt it to it and to the remnant of the step forward wall and attach the rod to it?? Does anyone have a different idea or where to get a new mast step? Thank you for any suggestions.
