Magazine Description

In this issue

Our annual issue on voyaging has a section on Blue Water Gear that starts with an interview of Liveaboard voyager Peter Smith explains his equipment philosophy and the gear setup of his 52-foot aluminum sloop Kiwi Roa. Then we have a story on primary fuel filtration. Marine systems expert Steve D'Antonio explains the importance of a reliable filter setup. Next voyager Robin Urquhart conducts a survey of fellow voyagers and looks at the elements that make up a great voyaging boat. We follow with a story by a voyaging couple recounting their decisions to either replace or overhaul their boat’s engine. In the Offshore Safety section we have an interview with cruisers Jack and Zdenka Griswold who talk about safety on Kite, their Valiant 42, during their circumnavigation. Next is a story on marine weather: High Definition Weather. Meteorologist and weather router Ken McKinley explains how the newest GOES 16 weather satellite will improve forecasts. We also have a medical story on dealing with a head wound at sea. Carol Archer, who sails as crew aboard the Swan 100 Virago and who is a former emergency room RN, describes suturing a head wound at sea and follow up after care. The last story is on immersion suits. An immersion suit is a vital piece of safety gear for anyone sailing in anything but strictly tropical water. We'll look at what's available. The Voyaging Skills section starts with an interview of Phil and Aimee Nance discuss skills learned aboard their Dufour 45, Terrapin. Then we have a story on getting ready for to cross the Indian Ocean. Patrick and Rebecca Childress explain preparing their Valiant 40 for a big ocean transit. Next is a story that examines the issue of getting and storing provisions on a voyaging boat. Finally, in our From the Taffail end page is a story that humorously describes a voyaging couple's problems and how they might have been due to a strange outside force. Plus, our Ocean Almanac items, the Year in Review and Fiddler's Green.
