I purchased it with no receiver and a keel bulb separated(broken) from the keel fin. I bought a Spektrum DX5e xmtr and rcvr and repaired the keel. Had it out for the first time yesterday in light to medium conditions. Boat tracked very well after some tweeking and in my mind was moving quick, but I have no reference....so what do I know ! Also the sails are tired, so will be replacing those ASAP. I would be interested in a Keel assy if anyone knows if one available somewhere.
Looking forward to sailing against others.

Don't know the number, but 3018 means that there were three thousand seventeen other Marblehads registered prior to it.
Welcome to the M. Now that you have one, you will see hundreds more. That's because there are thousands of Them.

Orco #3018

Just received a note from the class Pres. Looks like the boat was last registered to a Paul Brown in 1989 ! Anyone recognise the name ?

Bob, don't believe there are any M racers in the Sound area but you are welcome to race with our IOM group. We alternate every other Saturday between Surprise Lake in Milton and Gene Coulon Marine Park at Lake Washington March through October.
