The November/December issue of Good Old Boat features the Bayfield boats — particularly the Bayfield 40 — has a review of the Pacific Seacraft Flicka, presents Don Casey on repowering (preparing to replace your diesel engine), and tells the history of the Pearson Yacht Company and birth of fiberglass boats. Our Small Wonders column, which was created in fond memory of Small Boat Journal, discusses moving immovable objects. We’ve also got pressure cooking aboard, replacing your holding tanks, Ted Brewer on helm balance, a lovely picture spread by Scott Kennedy, and something we’ve all asked ourselves — “Why?” by Bill Sandifer on the frustrations boat maintenance can cause. We offer some welcome news for Bristol Yacht sailors, how to make your own pushpit seats, some neat Christmas fiction by Don Launer, the vessel in the fog, and our usual Reflections piece to close out the issue.
