1999 (#6) May/Jun


Issue #6, May/June 1999.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,



The May/June issue focuses on tuning your standing rigging, appreciating your tiller, buying an affordable boat, restoring a Bristol 27, keeping the motion at anchor under control when there’s surge with a flopper stopper, and fighting mildew. The Pearson Commander is our feature boat, and the Bristol Channel Cutter is the boat reviewed in this issue. There is a feature on two men who choose to preserve classic sailboats and a small wonders feature on the use of chip logs and lead lines. We also feature the sailor who designed the duffel bags that¬†were part of our giveaway prize drawing for subscribers. This issue is huge — 96 pages — in part because we re-ran the entire list of sailboat associations and contacts, a list, at the time this was published, of more than 500 names and growing.
