Boats in this issue include the J/40, Monsun 31, and Chris-Craft Capri 31.
Getting technical, we include how to clean your winches, inspect your rigging, convert a quarter berth to a cockpit locker, choose the right antifoulant, find the coolant leak, and tame your boom with a vang/preventer. We profile the Hilmark Boats company of British Columbia and offer Fume Detectors 101.
On a less-serious note, there’s a cautionary tale about buying ever-larger boats, Neptune’s revenge, a photo spread of lovely dinghies, and an excerpt from the classic book, A Year in A Yawl.
What’s more: matching new wood to old, a clever sailtrack lubricator invention, a plastic razor blade, and a chain hook to keep the strain off your windlass.
