MeridianHere’s what she looks like today, attached.

Here is just one of the interesting inquiries that come into the CYOB Inbox.

Hello John,

In 1984, you published an article about the boat that I now own — Meridian, a 70-foot sloop built on Bainbridge Island. I bought her from the original owner in 2012.

There is a beautiful photo of her original drawings in your 1984 article. I was wondering if you might have a hi-res version of that photo that you’d be willing to share. 

The online version of the article is here.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Glenn Bonci

Hi Glenn,

Unfortunately, with the age of the issue requested, and the magazine changing hands over the years, I have no idea where the originals files could be from 35 years ago.
The best I can do, is send you the highest resolution scan of the page that I can, as all we have now are archived issues of the magazine dating back that far; please see attached.
My only other suggestion would be to try getting in touch with Steve Killing himself, to see if he still has any of the originals drawings from his Design articles published in Canadian Yachting.

Good luck in your search!

Hello Elissa,

You are so kind to go out of your way to help with this! I appreciate it very much.

It’s fun just having this scan. I’ll see if I can get in touch with Steve Killing to see what he might have to say.

Here’s what she looks like today, attached.

Thanks again!

Glenn

Thank you so much for all the boats you gave us over the years.  We have all the White ones we need, all the Blue ones and all the Black ones.  You gave us some with sticks in the air and others...

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
