How did that nice logo come to be?
The logo was inspired by images I had seen of the Gokstad Ship, and was generally in my mind before I actually started the magazine. There was no greater simple example of the power, grace, and beauty of the wooden boat. —WoodenBoat Founder, Jon Wilson
Excellent die cutting, great instructions, plans, building manual. Unusual subject I bought to learn how iceboats go together and work. Good educational project. I now feel like I understand how it all works, what pieces are used, how they go together. Always wanted to know...
I bought the Toad, tugboat for my sons 10th birthday. What a great little boat, we had so much fun putting it together (and figuring out what all the boat terminology meant), I’d buy another! Can’t wait to get it in some water in the spring!!
I bought two of your adorable stuffed seagulls for my two young Grandsons to keep at our house by the ocean. I’m very impressed. A very classy design, well executed. Thank You
Great warm cap that stays nice and snug and doesn’t blow away in the most blustery weather! It’s fun to meet people who know the logo. And we love the subtle red on black. Perfect hat for Northern Vermont!
Excellent kit. Well thought out. Excellent instructions. Great learning tool. I am a very satisfied customer… The Wooden Boat Store is top notch.
This is the third one I've ordered! Great quality, price and quick shipping! Plus, they have great customer service if you should need it.
Ordering was easy. Delivery was quick. Good quality shirt. Thank you.
Just what I ordered, delivered in a timely manner. Good quality, great design.
Easy to put on, inexpensive and plenty of space for tools. It has saved my other clothes from paint and epoxy.
Happy to see the yam color back, built sturdy & rugged. For me, when I don a WoodenBoat logo a sense of responsibility and accountability to craftsmanship pervades the shop. Those that get it will understand.
This hat is not too heavy, which is important to me because I like to have that long brim in the summer to shade my eyes and face. I have two of these hats: one in khaki, the other in green. I wear one or the other depending on the temperature and my mood. Sun block fabric keeps my balding scalp safe from a burn. All in all, just perfect of me.
Purchased on line and every step was easy.
Delivery was prompt and part was better than expected.
Ordering was a breeze, the product arrived on time, as advertised, with the same great quality we expect!
This is a fascinating book full retired small boats and their stories. The photographs are good and varied and the stories are varied and interesting summarizing the fate of these Norwegian boats and the people who worked them. The sentence on page 3 is worth the price of the book "That year he died-far too soon-as most fathers do." I would have made the book coffee table sized and on glossy paper as it is worthy of such.
Great gift! Got this boat kit for our 8 year old son and had so much fun painting and building it. It sails beautifully and is weighted nicely. I would gift it to adults as well - great fun!
