The March/April 2006 issue is simply gorgeous. If you’re a fan of Jim DeWitt, you’ve gotta’ have this one with a DeWitt cover and center spread. Boats include the Alberg 30, Seafarer 30, Columbia 33 and 36, and a Cape Dory Typhoon refit. The themes in our serious articles include thunderstorms, drawbridges, apparent wind, marine radar, heads, pilot rails, surface-mounted ports, and Galley Stoves 101. For fun there’s a great article on cruising kids who’ve grown up, Murphy’s Law of boating, systems that work when cruising, relics left aboard by previous owners, HIN numbers, and that hankering to get out there cruising. Quick and Easy and Simple Solutions articles deal with a tiller holder, fruit flies, no-see-ums (notice a trend here?), a sheared stud, a winch handle holder, Le Tonkinois varnish, and a bilge pump counter.
