"Mariner" is an 80.2 cm (85 kg) male loggerhead as evidenced by a tail length of 34.4 cm (43% of shell length), and likely a mature individual as well. "Mariner" was named in honor of the good folks at the Fernandina Harbor Marina who over the years have allowed us to use their dock to transfer injured or sick sea turtles to begin their transit to rehabilitation facilities.
