Current issue highlights: Reviews of the Downeaster 38 and the Hunter 20.
Speaking seriously: Spotlight on transom-hung rudder failures. Reclaim deck stowage space for the aft cabin stateroom, make a leecloth from old sail cloth, sew a handrail cover, replace the entire plumbing system, and give your leaking teak decking the heave-ho.
Lighter fare: Living the dream means coping with the occasional nightmare, might good old boats be the next classics?, and reliving the memories. Also a creative fix for an irreplaceable piece of hardware, vacuum-packing eases cushion stuffing, a no-spill oil filter change, and a very helpful "nut job."

We've posted our 100th Life Aboard Tip!
We've done it! Have a look at our Facebook page: Facebook.com/goodoldboat. We started a quest to post 100 Life Aboard Tips and have accomplished that mission! Thanks to all who submitted their tips. Our combined experience is awesome indeed; together we are an incredible sailing resource!
Choose your style
Because it's so popular, we have been offering our classic denim ball cap for just about forever. But now it comes in khaki too. Same cap . . . new color.
Still can't make up your mind? How about a khaki cap with a denim bill?
Or all three. Make a fashion statement! See them all on our Logo Clothing page.
Choose your cap each day based on the mood of the moment or perhaps to complement the day's sailing attire. Or wear one when you're doing boat projects (the stickier and oilier the better) and another for "dress occasions"! Perhaps something for all the members of the crew?
