Welcome Aboard

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

Current issue highlights: Reviews of the Slipper 17 and the Starwind 27. The Alerion Express 28 is our feature boat.

Speaking seriously: Spotlight on a traveler modification, the trouble with old shore power cables, and a comparison of a dry suit with an immersion suit. Also: doppler radar, part 1; building a winter cover that allows you to work on the deck; a fix for a long (and wobbly) prop shaft; what to do when you need one more wire in the mast; and a great cantilevered table extension.

Lighter fare: The delivery trip from hell, finding extra space in the overhead, a great boathook trick, a remote (and accessible) lever for a seacock, new uses for a car trunk organizer, sailing with kids, and spider wars.

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?
