Carbon fiber has the tensile strength of steel, yet is feather light in weight. Picture sailing with four 50-pound sandbags tied above the lower spreaders, this represents the difference between aluminum and carbon on a typical 40 footer. That is why carbon masts are lighter, stronger and stiffer than any other masts in the industry. Our all muscle no fat epoxy laminate is pound for pound stronger, stiffer and more impact resistant than any other hull laminate in the industry. Picture yourself...

Classic Plastic By Dorsey Beard

Easy on the eye, the Able Whistler 32 rewards attention with contentment When Able Marine founder Cro Fox set out to build the Whistler 32 in 1981, he enlisted Chuck Paine to develop a seakindly vessel that would comfortably accommodate a couple for local and extended cruising between Nova Scotia and the Bahamas. The boat had to have a shallow draft and be solidly built, easy to handle, and, perhaps above all, pleasing to the eye. Our Whistler, built in 1982, the third of the 17 built, was...

Hoyt says, I'm in my 70s, and I don't want to go to a powerboat. As you get to my age, you're not as strong as you used to be, or as agile. You've got to get off the foredeck. And the Alerion 38 lets you do just that. Swept-back
