      Probably MAIB (Messing Around in Boats, and I'm sure a bit of web
      surfing will find the contact info), which I believe sells back issues.
      I bet if you snail mail MAIB they can tell you which issue. Or there may
      be indexes on line someplace.

      I don't remember exactly. I seem to recall it might be ok but a boat
      designed for that size would be better.

      Japanese Beach Cruiser is in Boats with an Open Mind. Quite pretty, and
      it's a pram. Maybe too many chines. I think about 12 feet long, as I
      recall. And I think Bolger has some other boats of that sort which might
      be worth looking into. Isn't there something called the Supermouse?
      (also a pram). One of the boats at bateau.com is a big pram, and not
      ugly, IMHO. It's not just you, a lot of Michalak boats are funny looking.
