Celebrating over 50 years of Mariner existence, the original design was that of Phil Rhodes commissioned by the Allied Boat Company and a 19’ plywood boat called the Hurricane was produced. It was a good design and hulls were sold to owners for finishing. Palmer Scott, another New England boat builder bought the shells and added cuddy cabins, wooden cockpit interiors and cast iron keels. In 1948 they sold for $1,695, complete with sails.  Marscot Plastics took one of the shells and produced a fiberglass version.  Marscot eventually went of out existence and the O’Day company took over. Headed by George O’Day,a brilliant sailor, who won gold medals, probably got more people involved in sailing than anyone else of the day with his O’Day day sailor 17’.  George O’Day made an agreement with Phil Rhodes to put his name on the boat he designed and in 1959 they sold 50 Rhode’s 19’s.  O’Day wanted to design a family version and so he added a good sized cabin and redesigned the deck and they called it the Mariner.  It was George’s first venture into the cruising market in 1963.  Eventually both a keel and centerboard model were offered and over 90 boats were sold that first year.  The Mariner went through modest changes through the years and in 1968 they enclosed the cabin, removed the small aft deck, raised the cockpit, put in longer ports and added quarter berths and a self-bailing cockpit.  This boat, however has the open cabin, but comes with berth and cockpit cushions and a mooring cover, which keeps the boat dry.
