‘Lectronic Latitude, Latitude 38, and Monica Grant did it again. They published another Resourceful Sailor Series piece on April 17, 2023 called The Resourceful Sailor Battens Down The Hatches. It’s about replacing the cockpit sole engine lid gasket on Sampaguita, a Pacific Seacraft Flicka 20.
Thank you to Monica and Latitude 38 for publishing this installment of the Resourceful Sailor Series on March 27, 2023, The Resourceful Sailor Explores Adding an Additional Propane Tank to a Small Boat.
This Pacific Seacraft Corporation of California promotional material was reprinted from Sea magazine, published September 1989, and written by Peter Bohr. I received a folder of various Flicka 20 hard copy brochures and articles when I purchased Sampaguita, Hull #317 and this was included. In my reduction of paper storage, I have decided to preserve and share them digitally. All Copyrights are retained by the original owners.

The 2022 Arctic Expedition has reached Port McNeill on upper Vancouver Island. Some great downwind sailing and incredible scenery. We’re on target and happy to be traveling. Porpoises, whales, and eagles abound.
When faced with the dilemma of how to install a lee cloth on a small boat, The Resourceful Sailor decided a lee net was more suitable. It was more versatile, less costly, and more adaptable to Sampaguita‘s anchoring options. This is the subject of the latest installment published by Latitude 38 and ‘Lectronic Latitude on March 21, 2022. I can’t thank Monica and the crew enough for their support.

Could it be done single-handed? You betcha.
