We found these old issues of Wind Vane; an early zine about multihulls, cruising, and seasteading from some of the founders of the movement. Contributing authors include Jim Brown, Jo Anna Brown, Tom Freeman, Jo Hudson, Tim Mann, and John Marples. It makes interesting reading. I don’t know how many issues were published but if you have some that I’m missing please send them to us and we’ll post them along with these.
