The first issue of Good Old Boat, which came out in June 1998, included an in-depth look at seacocks and through-hulls with an article by Nigel Calder and a companion piece on marine metals by marine architect Dave Gerr. Don Casey had a guest editorial extolling the virtues of good old boats. The issue also focused on the Atomic 4 engine, featured a Cape Dory 30 and her good old sailors, and presented a way to restore your rubrails. We had a centerfold of good old boat photos. And we included a list of sailboat associations and owners’ groups.
This issue is no longer available in print, but is available as a downloadable PDF
