This issue includes refit articles (coincidentally) about a Pearson 36 and about a Pearson 365, reviews of a Hughes 25 and a Nonsuch 30, and an article by Ted Brewer comparing Slocum’s Spray with two other circumnavigators. To keep you thinking, we added articles on navigating locks, precautions to consider when cooking with propane, fixing a sticky rudder, a report on ongoing modifications to a cruising boat, how to build a 3-way settee/berth, and Mainsail Handling 101. For fun we add a profile of Will Lesh, who builds model sailboats, a focus on the LOWISA regatta, cheeses that will go the distance, sailing across the Atlantic with eight young children (What was he thinking? And he’d do it again!), a Lake Superior center spread, and a Reflections piece remembering sailing on a day when no one should have been out (what joy!). We also add a cure for anchor-line chafe, the Tool Leash, and halyard chocks as Quick and Easy articles and building your own cradle and downsizing your outboard as Simple Solutions articles.
