I used to post on the Trailer Sailor forum, but I didn't know that there was a magazine too. Small Craft Advisor is mostly about small boat buying. Still could be of interest though. thanks, mstern

If you are in the Chesapeake area, Spinsheet is not bad. And it's free!

If you are after good magazines on cruising under sail then my favourites would be Practical Sailor, Ocean Navigator and Good Old Boat. If you want a pleasant read with some nice eye candy then Cruising World and Latitudes and Attitudes both of which are a pleasant enough read but hardly deep and meaningful. Years ago I subscribed to the English Yachting Monthly and liked that a lot but it's too damned expensive now. I havn't read a copy of Sail for years so can't comment on it's present state but it used to be a good read.

One of my favourite magazines is Points East. It's free, but you can't get it by mail. I manage to get one about once a year

Good Old Boat. Simply the best publication for real world, everyday, hands-on sailors.
Practical Sailor. The "Consumers Guide" for sailors.
Cruising World. Just for the "wow" factor.
Sailing. I just received a free issue. Had never seen it before. Good bye Cruising World.

Sail Magazine has recently begun issuing a quarterly magazine called Boatworks, which has a lot of good articles on DIY projects, basic primers on systems, reviews of older classics and restoration articles.

Much more focused on the average boater than Sail's usual mega bucks articles and endless brokerage ads.

Being from Maine, you must read Woodenboat and Maine Boats and Harbors. I know they don't meet your small boat criteria but I think you have to read what's pertinent to you and take the rest with a grain of salt. Soundings is good too. Good luck.

"Boatworks, which has a lot of good articles on DIY projects, basic primers on systems, reviews of older classics and restoration articles."

This Magazine, "Boatworks" is wonderful! It opens up your skill set and really motivates you. Another great nautical periodical is "Practical Boat Owner," a British insight on messing about.

Has anyone else noticed some changes at Sail/Boatworks? I am recieving amazing offers suddenly. $10/yr subscription? What is that? At that price, I'm wondering how long I will receive it before it goes under. I also noticed the "tag line" (?) on Boatworks has changed from "The must have magazine for the hands on sailor" to "The must have magaizine for the hands on boater". They also now show "sail + power" in the "flag" on the cover (used to be "sail"). Me thinks there might be a market penetration situation here.
