From James B. Conolly on 7/23/1999:

Mariner, design by Phillip Rhodes, is basically a Rhodes 19 below the rubrail.  Where the
Rhodes has an open cuddy, all Mariners have a cabin of some sort.  Pre-'69, they sleep
~2 (V-berth), and have room for a porta-potti.  They seem to have been built with open
backs to cabin (like a higher, wider R19 with windows).  Have seen a couple, don't know
much more than that.

Starting (I think) in ~69 they built the 'Mariner 2+2'.  It has a sitting headroom cabin,
usually equipped with a porta-potti and cooler or water tank.  Marginal sitting if more than
6'tall.  Also sliding top hatch and opening fwd hatch over v-berth, with 'normal'-width
hatchboards.  It has a sink, of sorts, (bowl in a holder, with no drain, sometimes a
fold-down pump faucet) under the port-side aft end of the v-berth.  They also raised the
cockpit seats a bit (apparently), and added two quarter berths (hence 2+2) one on each
side, immediately aft of the v-berth.  The cabin is why I bought the 2+2.  Sleeping
arrangements less of issue than privacy, head & storage.

Mariners were built by O'Day, now by Stuart Marine in Rockland, ME.  Pictures on the
Mariner Class Association web site are of Stuart-built boats, as is profile in the Sailing
Sourcebook.  Hull is about the same, Stuart uses a lighter (70#) composite CB plus
ballast along trunk vs O'Day 130# steel C/B.  Topsides, cabin details, mainsheet rigging,
(and probably a lot more) differ between boats from either manufacturer and between
years of manufacture.
