Thanks to the wishes of an uber-secret previous owner, images and videos of the monster Gunboat 90 have been scarce since her launch.  But now that the biggest and baddest cruising cat of all is up for sale, the covers are coming off for the world to see.  She’s got the M&M ‘battleship’ lines that [...]

Big Pimpin’ For generations, families have gone into the woods to dig up time capsules. Relics of the past, to see how things were done way back when. For anyone who dug up an old Club 420, they were able to take it straight to the racecourse and give it the whip. So many of [...]

Love him or hate him, the first man to win a non-stop RTW race has certainly earned every sailor’s respect in his long, long life, and his history isn’t even the most interesting thing about him.  Our fascination with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston comes from how little he seems to give a shit about anything that [...]

Like most sailors, we’ve never quite gotten the cruise ship thing. Why shell out a bunch of money to hang out on a moving motel that smells of burning diesel and the other thousand passenger’s farts?  Even more odd is how little ‘cruisers’ actually understand about what they may be getting themselves into; they never [...]
