    Default Nov//Dec issue

    It's been in my grocery store in Maine for a week or more, but not in my mailbox.

    I have three choices
    1) I could buy the copy in the grocery store and keep my mail delivered one for posterity. When I was more profligate I used to do this, I'd get it delivered to my mother's house in Wales to be sure I had every edition, and buy it at the rigging shop in Tortola, because I could not walk by it.

    2) Go to the grocery store and surreptitiously read the key articles. They already think I'm a ne're do well. I won't do that because it's like a drug; once I pick it up, I'm never going to give it up

    3) Quit my moaning, the nice lady at the 800 number, says it will arrive by the 27th.

    I guess I'll chose box number 3, Patience is a Vertue (joke for the cognoscenti).

    I wonder about this from the boat-deprived midwest: The mag usually arrives in the teens of the even numbered months..... Did they have difficulty winterizing this year? :-)

    Patience is indeed a Vertue so, excited as he may be to get his hands on it, let's hope Gareth can keep Hiscock under wraps until his next 'issue' arrives. There. I said it. Yes I did.

    Patience actually is a Vertue. Took 20 years to build her. She's in Hobart.

    Agreed Gareth. I liked the Sting Ray article. She used to dock at the Cape Cod boatyard behind the house I grew up in during the summertime. 'Queen of the Fleet' wasn't enough to do her justice. It was something to see her and the Kennedy's MARLIN racing flat out across a calm Nantucket Sound. That was one time a powerboat's wake wasn't annoying to this becalmed sailor. https://www.jfklibrary.org/Research/...ts/Marlin.aspx

    The article about Dulcinea (etc.) revealed that the Vaitses version is now in Alec Brainerd's Artisan Boatworks 'stable' of boats to be restored. A couple who used to post here passed her on to him. A beauty.

    Yes, it's a great issue. I do feel, for reasons I can't justify, that subscribers should get it, before or at the same time as it arrives in stores. I guess one justification would be equal access to the classified ad's.

    Or at least make the digital version of the ads freely available to print-only subscribers as soon as they are available. This month's "Save a Classic" is VERY nearby and I went to see it this afternoon when it stopped raining. It's already being looked at by someone who got the issue 'early'.

    How do we cross-post this thread to the WB Magazine Forum?

    I'm guessing you are talking about the Facebook one.You can paste and copy the URL.However, Pat tries to keep that positive, I hate to whine there.

    This section of the forum is read by the editors. I'm sure there's a good reason as to why it's like it is.

    I was referring to the magazine forum here. The lovely Pat doesn't need that aggravation nor is it her bailiwick.

    Hi, John -- I'm happy to say she's been sold. Deva: Just a great boat. I just have the Araminta now. Just a lovely, lovely LFH design.

    While we're on the issue, anyone else bothered by the over-the-gunnel dinghy entry shown in "Getting Started . . . " What a perfect way to flip the thing right over. The correct solution is to have a foot loop at the stern. I use a line from one transom corner to the other and long enough that with a foot in the bight is comfortably below the water and my knee hits the transom.
