Re: identify this boat

Joe and Freddy,

I just bought a Link Leisure 17, just like in the picture, except mine has a white hull and white deck. Looking for more info, and happy to share my info.

Mariner 17

Hey Freddy,

It's been a while and I lost your number. It is just about sailing season again and I am going to try to get my boat "sea worthy." If you were able to get some pics of the centerboard/keel that would be awesome!

freddyray it is still over at the lake. We will probably bring it home in about 10 days.

Boat info

Hey Ray,

Any update on the boat info? If not yet, could you give me an idea on the materials in the keel? (lead, cement, etc...) Thanks man.

freddyray Joe,
It is a swing keel. In the center of the cockpit there is a raised cover that the keel sits in. I am at work and don't have any pics now and the boat is over at the lake about and hour or so away. I would love to talk to you and will call later. We found ours is very stable and held up to all the winds could throw at it that day.

Mariner 17 specs

Hello freddyray,

Thanks for the info. I just purchased a Mariner 17 by Link Leisure. It has no centerboard/keel which is why I got a really good deal. I'm new to the sloop style as I only had a Super Snark 11 Dinghy sailboat before. Would you be able to tell me if it has a centerboard or a keel? Also the rough specs on it. My problem right now is that I can not even picture what needs to go in there so I can get someone to fabricate it. A couple of good pictures might actually do the trick. I appreciate any information you can get me. As you have found, there are very few Link Leisure owners out there!

runner So you did sail Saturday? Bet it was interesting with the weather the way it was!

freddyray no more information. We sailed it in the race on Saturday in 13-18 mph winds gusting to 25 and increasing as the day went. It handled well. I paid 1000 for it without the motor.

Joesaila It looks a lot like my AMF Sunbird. 16' daysailer[IMG]Mary Sonya 2007[/IMG] can't figure how to get my picture here??? Very similar though

Have you gotten any more information on this boat? I actually was about to buy a used boat with similar specs however the picture is different. Somehow I only wrote down 11 numbers for the HIN. I too could find no other info on the manufacturer. Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for yours?
