OUR PROJECT BOAT - Ralfy and dad
Update on Trade-a-Boat's 1976 Mariner 760 project boat
In case you missed the boat, Ralfy IV is the cute name of our 1976 Mariner 760 project boat that we’re rebuilding, remodelling, repowering and will ultimately give away to one lucky reader.
After back-loading Ralfy on a truck just before the Sydney boat show in late-July, our beloved boat is now at Maritimo’s sheds on the Gold Coast.
The boat’s father and builder, Bill Barry-Cotter, has already jumped aboard and began his mental plans.
Trade-a-Boat is now heading north for a meeting of minds and the ensuing planning of our rebuild project. Watch this space. We are about to get our hands dirty. — David Lockwood
