January 2023 Archives - Small Boats Magazine

In our January issue we profile the Nexus Power Dory by David Roberts and the Cape Henry 21 gaff cutter by Dudley Dix. The Silent Hitch Pin and the Salus Coast PFD are the subjects of our gear reviews; our Technique features a DIY cart for small boats, kayaks, and canoes. The first installment of three chronicling a winter cruise by sneakbox spans the 980 miles of the Ohio River. Our editor mulls over a kayak that he built decades ago only to have it slip from both use and memory. PERIWINKLE, our Reader Built Boat, is a modified kit-built cruiser for a father faced with sailing solo after his kids grew up.
