Sail without a doubt. Kimball Livingston, Nigel Calder, Don Casey, etc. etc. That is a whole lot of knowledge across a wide spectrum of Sailing. I like to race, but also cruise sometimes, and most of the other rags are sure that their type of Sailing (racing vs cruising, old boats vs new boats) is the right kind, and kind of just disregard everything that does not fit in their view of the "right kind" of sailing.

And you just asked for the sailing magazines. I read most using Zinio so no, my house does not look like Hoarders.

DR - One of my best friends (a published author) suggested the name "Halcyon" for my boat! It's a GREAT name, but I may listen to my heart over the winter as I get to know my girl!

Yes - reading while Zinioing is a win-win endeavor!

That's best.

The boat was named Halcyon when we bought her. I researched previous owners and discovered that her first name was "Sea Hag" so we're happy with Halcyon.

Beware renaming the boat. I had serious bad luck after renaming my first boat even with all the proper ceremonies.

Good Old Boat- The only magazine that I read cover to cover, every page, including ads.
Woodenboat- This is straight -up old boat porn.
Small Craft Advisor- great small boat reviews, and Dylan Winter's fecal turbulations and ruminations.

Online- Classic yacht. Classic Yacht Magazine

Great replies - I will have PLENTY to read for the winter! Maybe I'll even know something after I come out of hibernation?

Yes DR - I will be careful about renaming - the PO is encouraging me to rename it. "C'est Magnifique" is OK, but it's not calling to me. PO's wife is Francais, so...

How about "French Kiss"? "Sacre bleu?"


Think about how the name of your boat will sound over the radio, or when somebody reads it off the transom. Foreign language names always get murdered. I can see "C'est magnifique" becoming Sest Mack da Knife.

I heard on the radio a boat named Babba Buoy. Howard Stern reference for those who don't listen.

I really like SAILING magazine. I enjoy Bob Perry's insightful reviews of new designs.

I just ordered SAIL and Good Old Boat to start with. Since I have around 9 LARGE books about sailing/reparing, etc. to get through, it will be nice to take a break for eye candy!

"French Delight" sounds good. Maybe "Shrink Wrapped" cause I'm in the psych business OR "Comic Relief" cause my paying hobby is writing for standup comics? With all this spinning around in my head in addition to, DOWNSIZING/Selling my stuff, LIVING ABOARD and moving to a different clinic - SHEESH! Maybe "Big Changes" or "Life Altering" would be appropriate? Or "Impulsive" - lol...
