Online- Classic yacht. Classic Yacht Magazine
fecal turbulations....Jonesy boyo what are you saying here

this is such a great play on words I shall have to nick the phrase and re-cycle it for future you

of course what you meant to say was "vocal tribulations"



fecal turbulations are obvioulsy what happens when you pump the old Jabsco

Dylan

PS in a lifetime of badly paid hackery small craft advisor is the most most splendid and abstemious publication of all. They give me a completely free hand to write whatever I like - and bless them for that. They also have a policy of paying their contributors quickly but badly - and bless them for that too

I read about that cleaning procedure - Empty holding tank 1/2 way, pour in detergent and take her out in heavy seas until bubbles come up out of the toilet! GREAT way to clean her out! I am learning so much on this forum!

Yeah, not TOOOOO bad a mag, or reviews.........wait a minute........

I think someone is greasing the stick here!

Frankly, I am surprised no one else has mentioned this one. I do like it. Do not always liek the review boat choices.....but that is another story and issue. I can say the same for ANY rag that reviews boats, as not all of them are what I personally want etc.

Reality is, buy some off the shelf, try those you can not via subscription, you will figure out which you like best for the info you want. All frankly have good and bad. Also look at the local freebies if available, like for me, 48north and Yachting have good info for stuff here in the NW. I've read Lat38, has good info, but most is related to S Cal, similar format but more pages than 48north.

GOB is ok, altho I should probably say more positive, as my boat was a review boat. I've helped arrainge 4-5 other boats since thru my local club/marina. I do like the newer articles BP is doing on designs and info about it. Its ok, but the reviews to a degree are a bit same o same o.

Pacific yachting is another local NW US/SW BC aimed rag that is good too.

I get Sailing, sail, sailing world by subscription. I'll pickup a woodenboat upon occasion, still remember when that first came out.........

I see I accidentally listed Sailing World twice so that gives me back some time But, I forgot Sea History but that magazine is quarterly.

There is always time to read.
