I have had a 1979 Mariner 28 for the last 7 years. Found it abandoned in a yard in Maine. I have completely refurbished the boat. Hull is in great shape, chain plates are solid. Repaired a soft spot on deck. Solid boat and sails well. I have the fin keel version. I would suggest a large jib. 135-150, I have a 135 so I can see, I found the 150 to be annoying because it reduced visibility.
Beautiful teak cabin. The original Yanmar still runs great.

Re: Mariner 28
Good looking boat.. pretty conventional 70s/80s finkeel/spade rudder and should be similar to other offerings of the era a la Cal 29, Newport 30 and so on..
