Quality of Construction of Mariner Yachts

No not the ones built in the widely varying yards in Taiwan, etc. The ones built in New Hampshire.

I am in process of downsizing from a Bounty II to a boat around 28-30'. Not getting younger and want something I can easily handle (you don't use those words with Bounty II!) I saw a Mariner 28 the other day that really caught my eye. It's about the size of my old Cal 2-29 but the workmanship appeared very good and it just gave a well built impression. However, before I go back and start tearing it appart I wondered if anyone had owned or worked on a Mariner and their impression of the builder. I'm a little concerned since the builder is bankrupt now.

I read the reviews and did a search but couldn't find much. Thanks!
