Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, we're offering a sailing alternative to Thanksgiving TV viewing that will warm a sailor's heart (perhaps even the hearts of a few non-sailing family members).

In a brand-new video series, Outfitting a Small Cruiser for Voyaging, Good Old Boat authors Karen Sullivan and Jim Heumann take you for a walk around their Dana 24, Sockdologer. Karen and Jim have developed dozens of handy additions to make their 24-footer comfortable for long-distance cruising. Once they modified their cruiser to take advantage of every square inch, they sailed her from Seattle to New Zealand. They speak with confidence about what worked and what didn't. This video series is like having coffee with fellow sailors. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Here's a link to the high-quality videos featuring Karen and Jim produced by OffCenterHarbor.com. You'll see Part 1 on the landing page and be sure to sign up for Parts 2 and 3 as well as free access to 10 of Off Center Harbor's best professional videos. Enjoy your holiday!
