This issue features these boats: the Stone Horse and the Cal 40. We’ve got a profile of Carl Alberg, the designer of oodles of good old boats. Don Casey tells us about painting the topsides, and Ted Brewer tells us how to interpret lines drawings. Cary Deringer compares drag devices (sea anchors and drogues), and Andrew “Aussie” Bray discusses holding tank installations. Theresa Fort tells how to dry food aboard. Don Frye reports on the Good Old Boat Regatta held in October in Annapolis. Don Launer tells us about deadeyes. Jerry Powlas will make you get out your calculator with his conversion from decimals to fractions. David Dean’s The Boat Shop television show is profiled. Kai Sturmann breaks your heart with the sale of his first boat (or is it that darling daughter in the photo?). We’ve got a beautiful photo spread by Bob Chambers and poetry to accompany the photos by Jeffrey DeLotto. Simple Solutions include making a hurricane-proof mooring, defeating the dreaded drips, and the joys of a dockside shop. There are Quick and Easy projects also and book reviews and our ever-popular classified ads and the Reflections piece and Last Tack and… you get the idea.
