I have a 98 Marstrom that I bought unrigged, and I still dont think I have it all rigged right, or at least up to date. I saw some pix recently with a boat at the Intergalactics, but I could'nt quite see what all was going on with the rigging. I've searched the martsrom site and requested info, but no one has responded to any of my emails from marstom. Does.nt make me want to ever buy anything from them if thier customer service is that poor, but maybe I dont speak the language...
Does anyone have any Marstrom pix or info ?

Thanks

Maybe Chris Ford or Mark Schneider could send you pics of their boats.

Sorry, I have a Flyer,

Mike Faber, Dave Neece and Chris Ford have the Marstroms.

Mike might have some photo's of his rigging. Chris is not on the forum.

Dave. What in particular are you interested in? I live close to the club and will be there Sat. Of the three Marstroms I don't know how many are there at the moment. If I remember at work tomorrow I'll send you their email addresses. Ed

Thanks guys, I need over rotator(the blocks on the tramps are my primary interest) and the rotator control on the boom(mine is missing)

Thanks!

What about Spring Fever guys? Tommy Whiteside is 2 weeks before, leave your boat down at our club and drive thru on your way to Spring fever for double your fun. We might even be able to transport it for you to SF from Columbia, let me know.

Chris Brown is already lobbying for a trip to SF. Mark, you should go again this year. You can bring the whine. :-)

Brett's Marstrom was still available 5 weeks ago- $8K. Looked pretty good. I think Baker's is Mike Phillips boat from Miami- before that it was busted in Houston in a hurricane and before that it was Martin Hamilton's.

Thanks Dave. We have one of Martin's Marstroms up here. Mike F had it spruced up by Lars. We have many interesting names for it now. Ed

Brett's boat was for sale for 15K with chute, that would be a good deal for someone.

I may have that Miami/Houston boat, Ive heard it came from Houston, and was hit by lightning, but thats all I really know about it. It supoosedly came over with Goran with the 1998(?) worlds/NA's and then stayed in Houston, but went to Miami with Andrew Landenberger, then Leandro picked it up from him.

The Houston Yacht Club Marstrom flew across the parking lot, impacted a power pole, which busted in the port(?) side: sailed well with its white patch for long time. After that???

so what happened to the power pole?

we took some photos of my boat today - I'll forward as soon as I get them. Mostly shot the mystical over-rotator spaghetti.

Brett's boat sold this weekend, and was just delivered to it's new home in Georgia. We now have 3 A-cats at Lake Lanier Sailing Club...

Hi Group,
Brett's old Marstrom is up here in Atlanta.
I had a great time at the Mid-winters where I was really welcomed. What a great group.
I received some nice coaching and advice-I need it.
I did finish my last race near other boats-small victories.
This was my first time on a A cat-what a hoot !
I would be happy to take some pics of the rigging next time it is together.
Regards
Ken

Yes, Marstom is a bit difficult to get hold of directly. It's better off going through a dealer. Carla Schiefer of Coconut Grove Sails & Canvas can import Marstrom stuff and she is an A-cat champion.

I got my Tornado mast from her. I'm sure she can set you straight on your rigging questions.

Congrats Ken. Does it still have the spin kit? I always thought that would be a hoot! Ed

Believe it or not, I always had the best luck faxing Marstrom when I had my Tornado. That might still work.
