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.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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.

Re: Anyone have information on Marco Yachts?

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

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
