News From the Helm – August 2018



We have a fantastic readers’ photo spread coming up in the September issue, and we’re already thinking ahead to the next. If you’ve done any fancy rope work on your boat, send us a great photo of it. Maybe you’ve wrapped your wheel or boat hook handle. Maybe you’ve wrapped your keel-stepped mast (for the ship’s cat to use as a scratching post?) or compression post in the cabin. We really want to see it. Get creative and make it pretty, use morning or afternoon light, show us your stuff. Send high resolution photos to
