The November issue is another thick one. Boats include the Cape George 38, the Eastward Ho 31, and the Chrysler 22. A Hinckley 38 gets a refit and we review the history of Tartan Yachts. On the serious side we’ve got Ted Brewer on center cockpit and pilothouse sailboats, Paul Esterle (Capt’n Pauley to some of us) on paneling the overhead, and Chuck Fort on wind generators. Gregg Nestor talks about finding the right (maybe even used) sailboat trailer and Don Launer builds a sturdy hard dodger of fiberglass. The 101 series article is on alternators. On the fun side there’s Reese Palley on coastal cruising, a profile of designer Bruce Kirby, and Cruising Memories articles about life jackets, dolphins, and discovering your dream boat. The photo spread by Richard Coberly is breathtaking. The Reflections essay focuses on navigation (Where the heck are we, anyway?).
What’s more? Simple Solutions include an affordable powered winch, an update on Trex as a substitute for teak decking (it’s working out!), and a quick fix while under way for an exhaust leak. Quick and Easy articles include using wire ties as fasteners when trailering, fixing deck leaks with Captain Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure, making a new kind of mooring buoy pickup, and reeving a halyard. There’s more, too. Clearly we have something for everyone!
