Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

funding-the-fun: did you ever have a look at that MC39 being offered by SALT? I'm considering having a look, I've got the survey and additional pics. I'd love to compare notes with you. Please PM or Email me (I'm a new member, so I can't PM you yet).

Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

They are talking about the old Markos Yachts in Coquitlam. He built your Reliance 37 - did you have any involvement at that point or was it handled by your design client?

I remember when he was building the plug for that boat - it was his last I believe.

Jon:
Not really,. It was a funny project. I designed the boat for two partners who split before the first boat was done. I got a call when the plug was being built from one of them telling me that they didn't want a bustle on the boat. I had already completed the lines and work on the plug was quite a ways along. So I removed the bustle. I have never had a client makle a request likle that before. I had sporadic contact with Markos.

Markos was a bit eccentric but he was a straight shooter and a very good boat builder.
