Current Issue Cover, Contents & Article of current issue Print or Digital subscription Good Old Boat Magazine preview

Current issue highlights: Review of the Beneteau First 285. The Cheoy Lee Offshore 33 ketch is our feature boat.

Speaking seriously: Spotlight on these "life aboard" articles: flopper stopper, managing the icebox, and how to make room for one more dinner guest in the cockpit. Also: cloud formations; fundamentals of stability, part 2; replacing the stern tube; designing and making your own dodger and bimini; navigation technology; deflecting tacking tangles; and a clever diesel-vent burp suppressor. 

Lighter fare: Photos of our readers' boats; narrowboat cruising on English canals; growing up with boats; make your own automatic anchor light switch; shield your onboard computer from vibrations; use a turkey pan to catch engine drips; and enchanting a wife into loving the next boat.

Choose your style

Blue ball cap

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.

Khaki ball cap

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.

Ball cap, denim bill

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?
