To: WoodenBoat Devotees

Less than 24 hours ago, the new August issue of Small Boats Monthly landed on-line. And once again, editor Christopher Cunningham shares another one of his nifty devices. See his "Looking Back at What's Ahead" piece. it's not a country song, but will make the rowers smile, maybe hum. This new issue seems to have an awful lot of content for the $2.99 price tag (less if you do the annual subscription). Did you know if you subscribe, you also have access to all back issues? Now you do. And don't miss the reader built boat... a handsome Shellback Dinghy, made from one of our kits.

Two weeks ago we told you about some new Joe Youcha books, and we promptly sold out. So, if you were wanting them to be in stock when you ordered, now's your chance: Framing Square Math, and Bevin's Guide to Boatbuilding Math are once again on our shelves, ready to ship.

Coming right up... as in today, is a symposium at 4:00pm at the Maine Maritime Academy, in Castine, Maine. Topic: Aage Nielsen. WoodenBoat editors Maynard Bray and Tom Jackson, who authored the Nielsen book Worthy of the Sea will be there. To see Nielsen boats in the flesh, visit the town dock beforehand. And this Saturday, if you are inclined to visit Brooklin, there will be about 100 wooden boats at our WoodenBoat anchorage. They're here for the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta, now in its 32nd year.

And lastly, if masts are of interest to you, Kenjamin's Birdwing Mast Design thread on our WoodenBoat Forum really is worth a look-see.
