  • My first attempt at a restoration

    Well, I seem to have gone off the deep end and got myself a pretty rough 1973 Mariner-V 16. At least that's what I think. I've never attempted a boat restore before, but wanted a winter project. Here are a few pics of when I got it home. Purportedly there are no leaks, we shall see. I have attempted to upload a pic and it says. Invalid file data IMG_20170916_153215598_HDR.jpg Thoughts?

    ​I am excited to share the experience with you all, and have been perusing all the wonderful information here!

    Welcome Mac! There is a lot of good info on these threads. I look forward to seeing the boat and I hope you don't mind if I follow along. I for one have been using Microsoft one drive lately to imbed pics. Just don't use photo bucket.

          Make sure your pictures are under 2 meg's in size or it gives an error, also it will let you after you make 3 post here.

              Are you using the camera icon to upload your pictures here?

                Check out the directions here. I use Microsoft onedrive to embed my pictures but the other options work great as well.
                There are several different ways to post photos on iBoats. I'm going to show you three of the most common. Options 1 & 2 are the most consistent options.

                          aboard and to the Starmada Mac,

                          Looks like you have your work cut out for you with the Mariner and trailer, makes me wish I had another project

                          I see you have some mates that are all in on having a boat too, free labor is awesome!

                            Not bad for a first day.. I have a bit more hardware, and possibly some wood in the bow. I washed out the inside with the hose (power washer on the way) and notice only one drip, and it was very minor. I know that is not the same as putting water in the boat, but promising nonetheless!

                              Welcome aboard macsmith777.
                              Looks like you got a great start.. There is a lot of work on these old boats,
                              Just when I thought I was really learning, I continue to find out how little I really know.
