November 2019 Archives - Small Boats Magazine

If you’re growing weary of workaday woes, tag along with Tom Pamperin on his escape to the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage in the north woods of Wisconsin. For our Boat Profiles, we take a builder/owner’s look at the Bo-Jest, Glen-L’s power pocket cruiser, and assess the Team Dory from Chesapeake Light Craft. Our test of two extension handles for small outboard motors turned up one that’s a keeper. And Kent Lewis, after using Gill’s Dockhand gloves for a year, reports that they’ve held up well and are well suited to a variety of boating pursuits. On the north coast of Newfoundland, Alf Manuel, a lifelong boatbuilder, shares the inboard-powered skiff he built, working from memory alone, along the lines of the trap skiffs he admired in his youth.
