The April issue of Small Boats Monthly includes a hands-on piece about Oar Stands, and includes video of author/editor/woodworker Chris Cunningham taking one through its paces. It's well worth the look. And while you're on site, keep and eye on the new Classifieds section. You'll find hardware, sails, as well as power, sail, and paddling boats. Posting ads is free to subscribers, so as you might imagine, this new service is growing. We'd be remiss if we didn't point out our WoodenBoat Site has a big section called Boats for Sale.
What else is now available? The April/May issue of Professional BoatBuilder. Also, don't forget to check out the Proboat site, where you'll find all kinds of articles and boating industry news, including a piece on the passing of multihull designer Ian Farrier. And if you have questions about your PBB subscription, after almost two decades, Patty Hutch is moving on... to work exclusively in the WoodenBoat ad department. She assures us the subscription side is all set, and top notch. Customer.firstname.lastname@example.org if you have PBB subscription questions.
Are you needing to give a bit of nautical bling? Take a look at these unique Turk's Head Necklaces and Matching Bracelets. Made from copper, and woven by the talented hands of jewelry maker Stelios.
We've just added another design to our digital download plans section. The much beloved Catspaw Dinghy is now in PDF format. Digital plans are especially helpful if you are outside the US as they save on delivery time, international postage, and perhaps even some country fees. For more about how downloads work, we have a short video which takes you through the steps.
And lastly, March marked seven years since author/boatbuilder/model maker/fisherman/humorist Dynamite Payson passed over the bar. He's constantly in our thoughts, as we publish several of his titles. We're pretty sure he'd be "some impressed" that there is an ever-growing pool of contented readers of his books, like Keeping the Cutting Edge (in print for 35 years) and the recently re-released Go Build Your Own Boat! Dynamite also taught here at our WoodenBoat School, and when not making models, he would enlighten his students on the finer points of potato canon construction.
