To: WoodenBoat Devotees

At the risk of being tiresome, we're sending you another note without waiting for our self-imposed every-other-week heads-up. Things are hopping here in Brooklin, and we didn't want you (or us...) to miss-out. The Store is shipping most orders same day, so receiving your order in time to fit it in a stocking is easy peasy.

Especially good news: The WoodenBoat School has just released the course schedule for 2017. Take a look at the School Site for the courses, times, costs, instructor bios, and more. Plus you can download a PDF of the catalog from there. It's borderline amazing that as early as January 2 (when registration opens...) a person can pin-point a week in 2017 which will likely be their very best week--or two--of the entire year. But that's why the school is truly a magical kingdom.

We just added two new digital downloads: Getting Started #60 (supplement to Jan/Feb WB). And, if you've been a fan of the series, the #60 milestone also means we now have the next "set" of Getting Starteds. You can catch up in groups instead of individual downloads: 1-20, 21-40, and now Getting Started 41-60.

And lastly, if you had pre-ordered our new study plans catalog, Forty-Five Wooden Boats, your book has just come in. We're in the midst of shipping out orders now (we did get some out yesterday, too) and if you were waiting to order til it was in stock, wait no longer. Click 45 WB. This is our fourth catalog of study plans, and it's packed with boats begging to be built.

pps: This note just arrived from two excitable boys (apologies to Warren Zevon): We are really excited about Small Boats Monthly — an online-only magazine about small trailerable boats you can store and maintain at home.

Inside you'll find features on a range of designs for oar, paddle, power, and sail — plus all the gear, techniques, and inspiring small-boat adventure stories you need to know. Small Boats Monthly works on PC and Mac, all tablets and smartphones, and there are no apps to download.

Intrigued? Pay just $2.99 for your first issue. As a paid subscriber you also have access to every issue we've ever published since our launch in 2014 — for as long as your subscription is active. You can cancel at anytime and, much like the boats we cover, the price is small.

Click subscribe now. We're thrilled to welcome you aboard.
