Marinette Boat literature

Postby boattown » Thu Mar 15, 2018 8:29 pm

I was going through my boat paperwork pile and I found a few fun nuggets for us Marinette freaks. Here is a link to my rebuild website
1978marinette32.wordpress.com/2018/03/15/some-marinette-literature/ with three links to a Marinette manual, a Marinette brochure, and an article in trade magazine.

Thank you for posting those materials. It looks to me like the brochure was from the early 1970s. As a kid, I remember seeing a 32 sedan at the Cleveland boat show with the layout shown in the brochure and was surprised when my uncle's 1979 32 sedan showed up without the big front windows and the head forward on the starboard side. I believe the 37 sedan was introduced around 1976-77 and was in the brochures of that era. My uncle visited the plant while he was thinking about buying a 32--he had a 1970 28'--and got a ride in the first 37 sedan.

Wow - very cool website. Thanks for sharing. Question does not belong here, but you say tranny fluid was low and that causes them to spin in neutral?? Is that true? Mine spin as well - will check fluid.
