I have on OLD mari 4.8. Don't know much about the boat itself. Anyone with any history on this thing. A good boat all the same but could do with a jib. Again any hints on how to sloop rig?

The 4.8 was brought out in the late seventies. It was always cat rigged. The last i had to do with them was when they were considering adding a sloop version. From these talks was born the Mari 5.0 . I posted a reply in the rigging tips section. My old man is hive of information about these boats. Email pierstreet@iprimus.com.au

We have family Super 8 footage of the first maricat 4.3s in action circa 1976. not sure if there is any 4.8 film still surviving.
