To: WoodenBoat Devotees

Just arrived: Viking Hoodies. Patterned after our Viking Ts, the hoodies are Black with Cobalt Blue logo on the front, and "bound is boatless man" in Vike-speak on the back, in Dark Red ink. Also new: Navy or Oxford Gray Pullover Hoodies.

Although we're just past the half-way mark of 2013, you can now get the 2014 Calendar of Wooden Boats. Once again, Mr. Mendlowitz has managed to create a stunner.

We've just returned from The WoodenBoat Show in Mystic CT, and hope that many of you were able to attend. Weather was actually very good in spite of a threatening forecast. The breeze was steady so it was quite comfortable, even for those of us used to Maine weather. Thanks to all of you who stopped by our Store, School, and Editorial tent. One of the exceptional areas of the Show is the "I Built It Myself" section of boats on the Village Green. Amazing amazing workmanship and interesting details. The Viola May was trailered from East Texas, and the biggest 13' pocket cruiser you've ever seen, Bijou, made it from Minnesota. And yes, there were dozens more. Laura and company already have a slideshow of photos from the weekend, so click WoodenBoat Show 2013 to see more. And, you may notice that it's official... the 2014 WoodenBoat Show will be the same last weekend of June. It will also happen to be WoodenBoat Publications 40th Anniversary!

If you did make it to our booth, you may have noticed some interesting sculpture hanging from the posts. Hand-made from steel oil drums, these pieces are handsome as well as reasonably priced. We've just added these to our site, so to see all we offer, please click Haitian Artwork.

And lastly, if you're in an impulsive mood, find your way to Ullapool, Scotland, July 8-14, for the St Ayles Skiff World Championships. The design is by Iain Oughtred, and entries are Scotland, England, The Netherlands, Australia, and the US.
