re: Practical Sailor has deaf ears
Strange thing about practical sailor is that you sign up for subscription, then a few months later they send out subscription renewal letters (that does not indicate the date of your current subscription expiration). Then if you look into it you still have 6 months remaining on your subscription. There subscription service is definitely jacked up.
Sorry to say I recently did not renew my subscription. Two reasons: first the jacked up subscription service and second the articles started to go more towards the big boat day sailor than to my needs.
