The Rise of Phoenix - Part 1
We met Steve Bosquette and went for a ride in his Sneakeasy "Katie" several years ago. Since then, he sold her, bought her back and is rebuilding her into a whole new boat.


The Clasp Knife Rudder - One Man's Solution
I think it's good for boat builders to consider different ways of building things like rudders. Owen Sinclair saw something in this boat that he thought worth sharing with us.


A Short Cruise in a Philsboat
It's not often that we get to hear the story of a small boat cruise from the perspective of a female first mate - Caroline Wallis does a super job with this one.

Adventures in 'Doolittle'
Benji, who brought us the Origami Dinghy, got to go on the cruise of the lifetime, through the Mediteranian with visits to France, Spain, Italy, and Croatia

Adventures of Blue Canoe
Better known as "Dirtsailor" by his fellow Coots, Case Turner is an enigmatic fellow. He sent us this intriguing piece that was meant to be the start of a series, but no more.

A Winter in Florida - Part 2
Not everyone is as lucky as Bob Slimak. He got to spend last winter in Florida with a Bolger Bantam and a canoe. This is the second and final part of this travelogue.


Maryland's First PDRegatta
When John Herr finished his PDRacers, he checked the website and was surprized to find that Eugene Tehansky (pictured at left) had also built one.


Scenic surroundings, a Gentleman’s yacht, and a compact Square-rigger

The sailboat models of Eduard. the quite unique non-Footy Footies of the gentlemen of Yorkshire and the Olin Stephens designed Stormy Weather
Here is Mark Steele's monthly column a bit late this time.


Open 18 Footer
I have known Phil Lea since 2001 and he has always sailed a nice Junebug that he built. This year he decided he wanted something a little bigger.

What better way to start off the new year than with a set of free plans for a neat little rowing/sailing dink? Reinier Scheele was kind enough to share his with us.
