If you are thinking of getting into building model boats, we have your ticket. Boat Modeling the Easy Way by Dynamite Payson, is now back in stock, and under our WoodenBoat Books imprint. This book is the culmination of Dynamite's model making skills. It includes several handsome boats you can build, and is packed with Dynamite's insights from years of refining the processes.

Best. Opening. Ever. They must be doing something right at the WoodenBoat School. Their opening day for reservations was January , and, because they keep track of such things, we heard more reservations were placed that day than any day in their 39 year history. Want to see what all the fuss is about? Click MagicalKingdom.
We would be remiss if we didn't point out some items which were hard to come by a month ago, and are available right now. Our Rigging Knife, by Colonial (pssst... the price will be going up this year) and the pure silver Sand Dollar Necklace and Earrings by Hank Lawson. This may be the last year for the sand dollars, as Hank is promising to retire from this "job". He already retired from his boatyard job, so he knows how to do it.
If you're a fan of the Getting Started series in WoodenBoat, the latest (#72) is likely to become ms. popularity. Written by WoodenBoat editor Matt Murphy, and illustrated by Jan Adkins, it's about diesel engines. Click WHEN YOUR DIESEL QUITS.
And lastly, it's been awhile since we've plugged our on-line sister publication, Small Boats Monthly. The January issue includes a neat piece on the Classic 17 powerboat, which is available in plans or pre-cut kit. And, while you're there check out the classified section. There is an absolute steal on a Karl Stambaugh Catbird 16. Click DEAL.
