The November/December issue offers a review of the Alberg 30 and features the Ericson 36C as well as memories of Seven Bells, a one-of-a-kind wooden boat designed by William Roue, the designer of Canada’s famous Bluenose. We also have a Cape Dory Typhoon refit and a look at club-footed jibs and the advantages of the staysail rig. Ted Brewer discusses beautiful design characteristics, and John Vigor discusses the unthinkable: capsize (what if your floating home were inverted?). We have an unusual solution to the dinghy compromise and two articles on photography (one about photo composition and boating photos in particular the other about shooting technical photos for publications such as Good Old Boat). We take a look at how to trailer boats and why you might want to. There’s a piece about musical instruments that work well on boats and the friendships they create. We never forget to include a gorgeous art spread (and a little poetry, too, this time.) There’s the quick and easy section with a focus on hatches. And book reviews, the Last Tack, and Reflections, of course.
