Practical Sailor is aimed more at testing and recommending gear, bottom paints, anchors, etc. While it does have boat reviews, that is not the reason most people subscribe to it. I have subscribed for years and wouldn't be without it. Some issues have very little that interest me at that particular time and other issues I read cover to cover the day I get it. The good part is that by keeping back issues, if I suddenly have a need for something (autopilot, anchor, radio, binoculars, you name it) I can pull out that issue and read up on things. The guys do a very good job with it IMHO.

As for a trailer-sailor, I think there's even a magazine aimed directly at that market. Plus, do some internet searches and you should find a ton of info out there. All the big glossies cover that kind of boat every so often, too.
