Hi Bob and all.
Like, I expect, a lot of Hardy owners we came from a sailing background. One of the things we miss, when compared with a similar size sailing boat, is the loss of the saloon table when the berth is "made up". When the weather is good we eat on the cockpit table under the cover.
During lockdown I made a couple of trays for the helm and nav stations which clip onto the fiddles. Means we can breakfast in the warm using the seats. Tried to upload photos from my camera file but the site doesn't seem to allow.
If anyone is interested I will try again or supply a template.
Thanks Tony

Hi Steve
Thank you for your kind offer.
Now that we have sold our Hardy Pilot and she has gone to Plymouth we are able to start viewing boats.
We looked at a Mariner this week and it is just what we want, unfortunately, the engine size was not the 240hp version and that is the model we want.
So the search continues till we find the one we want!
Best wishes
Bob

Hello Bob, how is the search going?. I am very happy with my Mariner and although she is not for sale would be pleased to answer any questions or even show you around and arrange sea trials if you can get to Plymouth Kind Regards Steve.

Hi Bob.
Managed a quick safety review visit to the boat.
Maximum length of berth is 76 inches. Thanks Tony

Hi Bob. I can only partially help with your first question..
I have never actually measured the berth length, sorry. However we manage ok. I'm about 6 ft, wife somewhat shorter. There's a trotter box in the bow which needs to be raised to clear your feet. I have recently renovated the hinges/ latches to restore the height when raised. When we can travel I'll measure length. Thanks Tony

I am in the process of selling my Hardy 20 and trying to buy something longer. One of the models I am considering is Hardy MARINER 25. As I am unable to view any boats due to the lockdown I wonder if any existing owners could answer a few questions to help me with my choices.
1. What length are the single berths/seats in the bow cabin.
2. What were the years of manufacture for this model.
3. Was the same stern tube/propellor fitted whatever the engine size or were they matched to engine size?
Thanks everybody for your help.
