Especially note the lower transom rebuild (with ornamental nautical stars). This was done with NautiKing NP Penetrating Epoxy and NP Clear Gel Epoxy, then finished with NautiThane.


Some of Marlin’s more familiar books are “Broken Seas”, “Wake of the Green Storm”, and “Call of the North Wind”. These and other books, a complete description of Persistence, boating tips, and much, much more, can be found on Marlin’s website.
