On the cover: The 42' (12.8m) Silver Mist, a 1957-vintage commercial fishing boat originally built by Wahl in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, undergoes a full rebuild and custom conversion to a coastal pleasure cruiser at Commodore's Boats in Vancouver. Here, Commodore's crew Terry Karlsen fits a sheer plank snuggly against the filler blocks and black UHMW sister frames. Inside those, the new jack beams support the purpleheart aft cabin coaming.
