Blimey! Have we got boats afloat! There’s the Allegra 24, the Islander 28, a Pearson Triton refit, Maruska’s continuing saga, and a Beneteau Oceanis 390 cruising testbed. We remember designer Bill Tripp fondly, talk about preventing seasickness (is that really possible?), replacing chainplates, improving a dinette table, making a classy electrical panel, weaving rope mats, and installing an anchor windlass. There’s also a quick look at auxiliary propulsion systems: Iron Wind 101. We also include a love story and a cruising wife’s memories of the aggravating early days of cruising. There are the usual quick and easy articles, simple solutions, new products, and a whole lot more! Hop aboard!
