I have purchased a marina 12ft, but i cant find any information on the company or my boat, anyone any ideas
 
Wot? (edited in respect of decency..... I'm just off to put the cork back in the bottle! Sorry to all those who read my gibberish, prior to editing..)
 
Marina

I've got a 12/13ft marina hull stashed somewhere near me caravan. I seem to remember it having a makers plate...i'll double check.

You can always try south coast marine in bournmouth. they do a marque "Marina".
 
My Dad used to have one of those back in the mid to late 80's, it had a 28hp (yes that does say twenty eight, its no typo ;) ) Yam. I used to drive it when I was just a young whipper snapper. Before that he had some Dori style square fronted thing with an even less powerfull engine, I drove that one too. :D So there you have it, I've been driving boats for as long as I can remember!!! I just took a little break between 1988 and 2002 thats all. Its like riding a bike though in it ay :cheers:
 
I know its a marina because on the bows there is a recessed mouulding of the name marina and a dolphin or pike or some sort of fish, i was hoping to find some history out about the boats and some pictures .


TYhanks alot anyway
 
I know next to nothing about boats, but your description of the logo sounds to me like a fish called a marlin (bit like a dolphin but with a pike's long nose, often pictured arching out of the water). This, added to your initial spelling 'Marin' made me wonder if you actually have a Marlin boat so I did a Google search on 'Marlin boats' and found they make sports fishers now and have been making boats since at least the 80's. I found this logo:

Nope.

Its not a Marlin though they did make a nice sportsboat once.

I believe that BREN is correct about the association between the Marina and Shakespear. I think that it was once a model that they produced until the moulds were sold to A. Nother.:three:
 
It has a date printed into the moulding 14. 04. 1973, guessing this was its birthday if it helps
 
1973!!!!

I take it your gonna put it on the Bonny!:lol:lol: :lol:lol:

i once looked at a shakespeare marina magnum that was for sale it was a lot bigger than 12' with a mariner 150 on the back.
that is what make's me think of shakespeare hence using the name"marina"in one of their range
 
it does look very similar to the magnum, whats the bonny.


I only paid £205 for it and it was on a 10 month old snipe launch trailor so im happy
 
Clue, November the 5th!:drain:
 
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA



:snooz:


Its a good stater boat,


and all i can afford at the moment
 
I take it your gonna put it on the Bonny

No way, this could be a completely new direction for Boatmad, eg classic powerboats, shows, lots of chrome, always sat on trailers being polished instead of in the water..... infact Boatmad is there already :laugh:

good answer.


She doesnt look that old she wouldnt keep up with most of the boats on here but when shes finished shell keep up with the ones in her class.
 
Steve,

Excuse my humour and poor use of smilies.

No offence meant mate.

I can remember my early boating days well (One instance was of a Driver 440 with 115hp mercury with an oar strapped to it for steering! The teleflex had broken). :drain: :drain:

Some of my best times and most adventurous (Stupid) were on small fletchers etc.

Enjoy and have fun steve.
 
i didnt mean to sound arsey but thanks,



:brown:
