Our Boat Profiles feature an easy-to-build Sand Dollar from Arch Davis and the versatile Port Aransas outboard skiff. We join Bill Hutton on a hard-luck but rewarding row to a Florida Panhandle barrier island. Ben Fuller explains how to make and use oarlock extensions for forward-facing, stand-up rowing. Foulweather gear from West Marine and a folding saw from Silky get put to the test. RIPPLE, a 9’ dory skiff, is our featured Reader Built Boat and our editor’s shift from artist to boatbuilder opens this issue.
