1999 (#8) Sep/Oct


Issue #8, September/October 1999.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,



The September/October issue of Good Old Boat includes articles on climbing the mast, re-doing the standing rigging, adding chafing gear, repairing blisters, replacing ports, and making a valve-spring compressor for use with the Atomic 4. The feature boat is a Nicholson 35, and the review boat is the Contessa 26 (also known as the Taylor 26). Feature articles include love for a special boat dog, a photo essay by Mary Jane Hayes, a look at whether sailboats are really just RVs on the water, and a profile of Joe Palmer who offers parts and customer service for Tartans and other good old boats. And finally, the Pardeys take a look at why we tell “sea-fearing tales” of storms at sea, rather than speaking of the good times we’ve had out there.
