Although it's mid-August, the September/October issue of WoodenBoat is in our hot little hands, and can be in yours, too. Click WB 258 Print or WB 258 Digital to get the latest. On Monday we had a call from a long-time subscriber in Indianapolis who ordered three more of the new issue. He had just read his copy and thought it one of our best ever. Why three? Sharing. Thanks again for the kind words, George.

Included with the new issue of course, is another of the "Getting Started in Boats" supplements. If you're collecting them in digital format, we have the latest ready for you to download. GS 64 features 8 pages on being prepared for a storm. And yes, we do have downloadable Sets of Getting Started.

As we mentioned in our last newsletter, the August issue of Small Boats Monthly includes a reader-built Shellback Dinghy. We now A Boy's Boat, which is a book featuring that builder's Shellback. Fabulous cover on the book, too.

Two more wall calendars for 2018 are now in stock, so if you're a fan of mahogany runabouts or big classic sailing yachts, take a look at the work of the Wangards as well as highly regarded yachting photographer Kathy Mansfield.

And lastly, if you are searching for something boat related, our on-line WoodenBoat Forum is a worthwhile place to look. This brief thread is an interesting example of just what a great resource the folks who post there can be: Swedish Snipor. And, while we're mentioning resources, we also have a fairly good group of resources on our Store site.
