Capt. Bill’s Take on Passagemakers

Capt. Bill PikeWay back when, the true passagemaker had sails as well as a little ol’ diesel and the comfort quotient of your average dinghy. But now we’ve got:

  • Size and sumptuousness on a par with resort hotels. Everything from Vulcan ranges in the galleys to innerspring mattresses in the berths.
  • Supertanker electronics. If you’ve got two radars, AIS, MARPA, a couple of plotters, and a serious autopilot, whaddaya want?
  • Standup Engine Rooms on boats less than 40 feet! With workbenches, no less.
