Unleash the writer in you

Sailing has taken me many places and now I'm publishing sea stories (my own and others) through Shipyard Press, a publishing company I started in 2005. Shipyard is a publishing company for this new electronic age. I print books on demand, there is no upfront cost from authors and nobody is telling you what or how to write, it just has to be good, readable, page turner material.

Ay, the good life

It has been said if you make enough money to require a payment to Uncle Sam, then you are in good shape. Put the good with enough and you have the name of the boat I just purchased:  Good Enough.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
