Boats large and small include the Portland Pudgy sailing dinghy, Yamaha 25, Pearson 36, and a Jeanneau 40-something (don’t ask). When we get serious there’s the schooner rig, a bow trim casting replacement, roller furling, flexible grating, a creative waterlift muffler, Anchor Sentinels 101, and the need for boat brokers. Just for fun, an excerpt from The Solitude of the Open Sea (which is available as a book and audiobook), longing for a former boat, night sailing, looking for sea life, and model radio-controlled Lasers. And furthermore: rudder stops, the jug sling or hackamore knot, an all-purpose domelight, cockpit chart use, and another use for PlasTeak.
