Re: November's issue of Cruising World

No mention of the most important thing in a cruising boat ,directional stability on a broad reach in rough seas. The consider what most of us would call "exorbitantly priced" to be "Reasonably priced." They have zero interset in any hands on knowledge, just telling peopele to buy, buy and buy some more.
Rather than real practical cruising people, they are aimed at "Plastic people, in plastic boats, living in a make believe plastic world."
