I'm also a proud owner of a Mariner 28. Great boat. We sailed ours from NYC to Cape Breton, NS last summer and it was amazing in the ocean. Trusted it completely on the run from Cape Cod to Halifax....

I would think that a towing company would have towed them off without upfront payment. This would be salvage, not a tow. Maybe the captain refused assistance, in which case the boat couldn't be...

Dismal pretty but watch out

Dismal swamp is beautiful but we hit logs twice with a 4.5 foot draft sailboat.

I'd take the other route, and make sure you know what you're doing before you go offshore and run for it. The lows...

Repair

Hello,

I believe that is called the "stem fitting" but check with someone else as I am not a rigger.

I don't know how it would be repaired, but I would not take the boat out at all. If that...

Was wondering if you've done much sailing yet. If so, completely understand wanting a big boat. If you haven't done much sailing yet you may want to consider buying something in the 25...

Sometimes having a 30 year old boat doesn't sound like such a bad idea. In all seriousness, I hope this works out for you. I'm guessing that many surveyors would have missed this problem as it is not...

paint

Black flat bbq paint. Guy that works at a yard near me told me they use it on toe rails and cleats. Not going to last forever but it looks really good and costs 5 bucks. Pretty easy to touch up.

Inflatable Kayak

If it's a money issue, or you just don't want to tow a dink, consider an inflatable kayak.

A buddy of mine has the same problem with his Ben.

He was told by his mechanic that his prop was too big. Great for docking but the boat will shake if you try to get it up to the proper rpms.
