The November/December issue includes a collection of articles on buying, financing, insuring, and upgrading your good old boat and a look at tax considerations for boaters. It has a profile of designer Ted Brewer and a look at fiberglass boats (what can go wrong and how to determine whether an older boat is worth the investment of time and money). It includes a feature on the Niagara 35 and her sailors in Canada’s North Channel and Georgian Bay. A chapter of Roland Barth’s new book, Cruising Rules, pokes fun at macho types who don’t reef. Bill Sandifer shows us how he repaired extensive deck delamination in his Pearson Ariel, and Jerry Powlas talks about the vang/preventer system that works on his C&C. It has a centerfold of good old boat photos by Mary Jane Hayes. Sailrite’s Matt Grant discusses pros and cons of roller furling and hanked-on jibs, and Bob Wood lists names and phone numbers for resources for sailors.
