Our boats in this issue are the Cheoy Lee 35 as a feature boat and the Frances 26/Morris 26 as the review boat. A Pearson 26 is upgraded. We also offer the history of C&C Yachts. Don Launer begins a two-part series on repowering (he’s replacing his diesel with another diesel), Ted Brewer is eloquent on the subject of rudders, skegs, and spades, and Roger Ross completes his two-part series on what you need to cruise the Baja (or other tropical destinations for that matter). Steve Mitchell profiles the Chesapeake Light Craft company as our good old vendor, Nathaniel Poole survives his midlife crisis love affair with a boat, and Barbara Theisen tells about learning to sail and becoming liveaboards with two small children. There’s a beautiful art spread by Willard Bond, too, and another Reflection from “memory lane.” Simple Solutions include an instant chart plotter, an anchor angel, rubbing strakes, and a review of Pocketmail, an email solution for cruisers. Quick and Easy projects include fenderboards and sail covers. There are book reviews, the Last Tack, lots of classified ads, and our ever-popular Mail Buoy.
