Charm trimaran website
Ninth Charm is a sistership to our trimaran
Naga. She's somewhat newer, she sports a
wing mast, and she's build in foam core and epoxy,
unlike Naga's wood/epoxy (WEST System)
construction. The Charmers are in the South West
Pacific as I write this, not so far from us,
and one of these days we hope to get together.
Take a look at their site.
A good alternative to West Marine among USA equipment

for News and Current Affairs:
of us cruisers who have been living aboard or cruising
for a while rely heavily on Short Wave broadcasts
to keep up with news and current events. The Internet
has recently become another source.
links mostly avoid the large state or commercial
broadcasters and their websites because you get
their establishment unitary version and views on
things incessantly and at every turn anyway. It's
normal for them to be pro-big-business and pro-big-power
- and since we are just normal little folks they
don't seem to represent our interests or views very
well! So we prefer alternative sources, sources
that are more for the little guy and progressive.
You probably don't know some of them, so enjoy .
- World Socialist Web Site
The WSWS includes frequent trenchantly perceptive
commentaries on current events that are often worth

Pilger - The journalism and films of John Pilger
Pilger's work appears regularly in The Independent
(Britain) and elsewhere. He deals with the most
important issues of the day - and the era! - cutting
mercilessly through the thick fog of obfuscation
that permeates most media on matters of importance.
He penetrates clearly into the essence of issues
and their real relevance for us.
