Comment: Dave was the second person to buy his Mini Halfwood Press on E-bay. After he got his Mini then he wanted a Mariner. This prompted Tom, the steel wright, to build 3 versions of the Mariner. Number one was at first a direct drive, then he changed it to a 3:1 geared model, and later an 8:1. Dave bought No. 1 (the 3:1) in May, 2005. Later he allowed interested people to visit him when they wanted to see a Mariner; and he always gave positive reports.
