This month we take a look at the Allied Seawind ketch sailed by Don Casey, tell of Renee’s restoration, and profile the Hallberg-Rassy company. Guy Stevens builds his own watermaker, John Ditzler does a stern tube replacement, Theresa Fort turns a home sewing machine into a macho sailmaker’s tool, and Ted Brewer makes you want a motorsailer. We have a lot of fun with the boat of the year contests held by other magazines, do a profile of master rigger Brion Toss, and take a look at sailing into our 70s and 80s. Chuck Campbell’s photo spread of Maine is breathtaking, Barbara Wyatt chronicles a Scout dinghy refurbishing project, and John Phillips tells of the Monte J that went cruising without a crew. We tell of the third annual Good Old Boat Regatta in Annapolis, feature heaving to and making your own folding bike as Simple Solutions, and discuss a stern boarding gate and removable trailer lights as Quick and Easy projects. There’s more, of course.
