This issue focuses on the Dana 24 as the review boat and the MacGregor Venture Newport as the refit boat (you’ve got to see what they did to this boat!). Our good old vendor is Celestaire with a focus on founder Ken Gebhart. Steve Mitchell gives us a profile of Olin Stephens, and Cathy McIntire attends sailing school and tells about her experience. Cory Carpenter makes a shorty outboard into a long-shaft version, and Matt Colie tells how to beef up your tiller. Ted Brewer writes of hull form and also gives us a bit of insight into Ted Brewer as a young man. Armand Stephens builds a leakproof butterfly hatch for his Alberg 30, Norman Ralph discusses mast wedging, and Don Launer gets excited about bowsprits, bumpkins, and belaying pins. Theresa Fort gives us whale-watching guidelines, and Michael Greenwald tells of the delicacies of the sea (finding, cleaning, and cooking oysters, octopus, and more). A pair of young sisters makes you want to cruise in Maine. We cover the Master Mariners event in San Francisco photographically. And we have the usual photo spread, Quick and Easy articles, book reviews, Last Tack, Reflections, and so on.
