Build­ing a per­ma­nent ice­box into my Lin­den­berg 26. No more por­ta­ble cool­ers. No more warm beer at the end of a 200-mile race. —M. How­ell

Cruising World - - Underway -

In­stalling a 36-volt elec­tric marine propul­sion sys­tem in my ’77 Pa­cific Seacraft 25MKII Cut­ter (that I built from a bare hull and deck). Al­most done. Green by spring! —M. Lit­trell

As all cruis­ers even­tu­ally find out, the ex­pe­ri­ence isn’t just beam reaches and sun­down­ers; there are plenty of times when the “fun” is only re­al­ized af­ter the fact. The tough patches, how­ever, make days like this one sweeter.
