Rally to the sun...beware of 'Sandy' boats...rig your own boat...more
Boat shows are going educational and interactive I notice. Every boat show we've covered in recent times has offered an increased number of useful seminars and hands-on experiences – this week it's the Newport International Boat Show in Rhode Island.
In another article there's some sensible advice from BoatUS for American readers about potential dangers for boat-buyers searching for an affordable boat, because of the large number of left-over boats after Hurricane Sandy.
Rigging is not a black art .. .
One of the most interesting pieces of the week is about a new publication from the Royal Yachting Association. Most long-term long-range boat owners have learned how to 'do it yourself' for most systems on their boats, but they still go to an expert when it comes to rigging. If you have always wanted to fully rig or even tune the rigging on your own boat, but didn't know where to begin, this is just the place.
Much more in news and articles too – so run your eye down the headlines to find what interests you.
