As the world flies a yellow flag for COVIDS-19, here are a few ways to entertain and inform yourself.
I follow a few blogs from other sailors who are generous enough to share their expertise on taking care of boats. They made mistakes so you don’t have to.
If your fave blog on saving time & money and sailing more isn’t here, let me know.
Drew Frye is a sailor who happens to be trained as a chemical engineer. He wins awards too. He’s the exception to the Sailor’s dozen principle: he backs his opinions with lab-tested results. Literally lab tested.
Ken Billing’s DIY projects include research, steps, and lots of photos. There’s other fun stuff on saving money, too.
Rod “RC” Collins is an honest-to-pod-of-dolphins ABYC certified pro. He’s seen it all, including stuff that keeps a sailor up at night.
Wallace Gouk spends more time with boats than web page design. This marine surveyor shows us the good, bad, and embarrassing things that boat owner’s think they can get away with.
Mads Dahlke has been working hard to refit his boat, Athena. Scratch that. “Refit” isn’t the right word. What’s the word for “rebuild everything from scratch except the hull”? His videos are excellent and so is his work.
Andy Miller is another genuine pro. If a concert violinist plays a violin then Andy’s a concert fiberglassist.
A couple who maintain and upgrade their CS34 while cruising Lake Ontario. Their posts are full of photos, useful, and entertaining.
