To: WoodenBoat DevoteesAs this note hits the ether, we're en-route to The WoodenBoat Show, which opens this Friday (June 22) at the Mystic Seaport Museum. If "Free Beer" without the "Tomorrow" line attached is of interest, stop by the Small Boats Monthly booth (that's our sister publication) on Friday at 5pm for a meet & greet. Free beer, munchies, and raffle items abound. We just took delivery of a Building Skin-on Frame Double Paddle Canoes, the book by Hilary Russell, of the Berkshire Boat Building School. While you can't build from the book, read it to decide if this is the boat for you. If it is, you'll be paddling sooner than you think. Take a look. Need something nautical for your door or wall? We have just the item(s)... knotted wreaths in either manila or cotton line. They measure 17 and 16 inches across, so they may be the finishing touch to that needy focal point. Good news: the John Hodgman book Vacationland just came out in paperback, saving you a few bucks over the hardcover version. Heartfelt humor including some time at one of favorite locales, and even a few boaty things are thrown into the mix for good measure. Vacationland. And lastly, if you've ever wondered how to find that article in WoodenBoat that you recall from years back, WoodenBoat Librarian Pat Lown's on-line (and free!) MAGAZINE INDEX is the way to pluck which issue that article is hiding, amongst over 30,000 pages in over 260 issues published since 1974. Scot & Crew
