Boats? We’ve got ’em: the Allmand 31, the Hunter 28.5, and the Tartan 34 Classic, along with a primer on buying a bluewater-capable boat by Beth Leonard and a profile of Allan Nye Scott, builder of Albergs and Contessas. Technical articles focus on engine lubrication, insulating the hull, dockside air conditioning, satellites for sailors, the highwayman’s cutaway knot, and Wind Terminology 101. For fun we’ve got a look at hard dinghies, bread baking aboard, several great cruising memories, and a solo sailor’s photo spread (Charles Scott is not your average solo sailor!). What’s more? keeping a spare fuel can on deck but out of trouble, increasing galley space with a fold-up leaf, a simple companionway vent, and using a clinometer to check trim.
