March 2020 Archives - Small Boats Magazine

In our March 2020 issue, we take a close look at two gaff-rigged pocket yachts: the Weekender from Stevenson Projects and the PocketShip from Chesapeake Light Craft. Eric Hvalsoe takes us along with his friends to row and sail British Columbia’s Broughton Archipelago where tides set the pace and whales have the right of way. Our technique article is a sewing lesson that produces a full-length cagoule and our gear reviews examine a full-featured VHF/GPS and ½” belt sander for detail work. Two sisters who sent cameras to an altitude of 19 miles turn their talents to building a canoe. Our editor considers the looming global health crisis and how boating and working on boats will influence his approach to it.
