1987 36 Mariner - back to life!

Postby waybomb » February 5th, 2013, 10:16 pm

This year we bought a 1987 Carver 36 Mariner that sat out in the open for 10 years. I've posted some pix in my photobucket link below, and will post more as we go along. I listed a bunch of things we've done so far in the intro forum at the top.

Been working on it since about July.

Right now we have a total investment of 17k, which includes every dime we spent on her from purchase to registration, heated winter storage, and all the stuff we purchased. Not counted is the 500 hours so far between my wife and me. We only have about 4k to go in spending, and we'll be boating soon!
Thanks
Fred

I am not sure I know how?
I click the img button. What do I put in the middle?
The other forums I am on all you have to do is click insert picture and away it goes.
Thanks

Use the image code from photobucket. They give you several to choose from when view an individual image. The one that looks like [ img ] theurltotheimahere [ / img ] (with out the spaces)
