See on line Universal Medalist manual by clicking the blue part. Ericsons, Cals and Catalinas and some Tartans used Universals in the 1980
Also included are exerpts from letters that a surveyor wrote after visiting the plant where the Mariner's were fabricated and molded detailing the Construction practices that were used by the Mariner Yacht Co. in New Hampshire.
We lived aboard this Mariner 36 sailboat for ten months. Learned about fuel pumps and fuel filters, ways to dramatically improve the cooling of the 32 HP Universal 5432 for practically no cost, how Oil Pressure switches fail, as well as discovering the holding tank innovations now available such as dip tubes and center top mount for all piping to minimize leaks and clogged vents. Last but not least the top speed is 7.1 knots. See tachometer that runs off of the diesel fuel injector line pulses. Parts for the Avon Dinghy, We now have a Baltik 8.5' with pressurized floor. We found that there is a huge difference between an 8.5' and 10.5' dinghy,. Pressurized drinking water system. We now have a durable Winter Cover that still needs some adjustments. Finally found Nuke Tompson (Bob Tompson) who climbed the mast to replace the antenna, and the deck light I busted when lowering the mast in Albany. The Wilcox Crittenden toilet overhaul was a little complex. Found parts at Thetford...800-521-3032.
