Go on over to the folks at Latitudes and Attitudes – http://www.seafaring.com/ – some great articles in the Nov 2009 issue.
For starters (of interest to me) – a letter about an attack in Dominica (pg 42), a pitch about the Aqualink PLB and the Iridium 9555 sat phone (pgs. 48 & 49), choosing a weather window (pg 60), inspecting your lifeline (pg 70) and 1st Aid for cruisers (pg 78).
As protection involves more than fists, guns and alarm systems, these should be interesting readers for followers of this blog. Love to hear from any of you readers out there.
