Message From The Editor


I don't know about you, but I am finding the world a bit on the crazy side these days. Elections, social rules, Trump and so on. Really? But then there are boats.

No matter who is president, your boss or father-in-law, boats and water don't care, continuing to perform with timeless dependability. Sure, your boat may be a high tech wonder but it still follows the physics canoes and square-riggers did. The waves, winds and weather may not always suit us but they perform within the parameters of our understanding. You get in a boat, it travels, you steer and you go somewhere. That has some sense to it. In the chaotic space that is the rest of the world it's great to have something you can count on.

A corny thought? Maybe? But in the cold Canadian February it's heartening to know my boat is waiting to spring to action in a month or two and everything else can fade into inconsequence. Can't wait.

We'd love to learn your launch rituals… When's the boat's first dip? How will you celebrate? My email is below.
