Just thought I would jump in here and say hello although it looks like things are a bit slooooow.

My Marathon is wet once again. Hopefully I get a chance to use it this year.

Have a good boating year everyone.

Well, I'm not off to a good start, I posted this under,
"new topic" Sorry about that.

Hello All, I'm Stan and I am a boat-a-holic. I am happy
new orner of a 1986 21' Weekender. Thus far everything
checks out OK, but All the woodwork is weathered gray, and
will need to be refinished. The next issue is that I have
never seen a boat with so few deck cleats! One on the bow
and two on the stern. Thank Heaven I'm not new to boats and
have a draw full of hardware, including cleats.
   More to come, as soon as I figure out how to post
pictures.   All the best, Stan

Hi All,My 1986, 21' Weekender has been christened, "Patricia Ann" in honor of my wife of the past 55 years. I am still, and will be for at least the next year working the bugs out and giving the much needed, "TLC" to her and enjoying ever minute of it!
   Now, my first set of questions;
1) Why is there a deck cleat all the way forward inside the cabin?
2) Has anyone installed a water tight deck and hatch over the center well in the cockpit, for the much needed additional dry storage?
3) Same question for the space under the starboard bunk?
I think it is only dead space for flotation, and one or two hatches like you would use for a kayak would allow storage space and keep the water tight integrity.
4) Where can I obtain a wiring diagram for this boat?
5) Does anyone know where I can buy either a door seal or a new door for the frig?
   Thanks in advance for your help, All the best, Stan of the "Patricia Ann"

Hello All,
   Is there anyone out there? I don't think I have been here long enough to have offended anyone, but this is my third attempt, to get a response, am I asking my questions in the wrong place?
   
   I sure would appreciate some kind of reply to my last posted questions. I have found the frig parts, but I still am desperate to get some information on a wiring diagram. Another question is; Has anyone cut into and installed a water tight hatch into the space under the starbord bunk for additional storage?

   Thanks & All the best, Stan of the "Patricia Ann"

Hello to all my Marathon friends. Been a while since I've been here. Is the site still active? I have a bit of news to report if there are still people following this site.

If anybody still follows along id like to see if anybody knows where Incan find some windows. I'd like to replace the existing plexiglass side windows with some sliders for some ventilation. Any ideas?
