November 5, 2014To: WoodenBoat Devotees
Just arrived: GREEN WoodenBoat Burgees! A good-looking dark rich green, with white stitchery. With this addition to the line-up, we have three colors to choose from. You'll see the other two if you click on the link for the Green Burgee.
Also just arrived: Small Boats 2015, print issue. (Don't miss the link for the colorful table of contents.) This was a nice surprise as it landed on our loading dock yesterday afternoon... earlier than expected. That fantastic cover photo of the McKenzie River drift boat is by Lillian Howard. If you were waiting for it to be in-stock to place your order, your wait is over. Please note: you can also pick-up at your local newsstand/bookstore in a few weeks.
One more new arrival: The Story of The America's Cup, 1851-2013 told in paintings by artist Tim Thompson, text by Ranulf Raynor. Even the end-papers of this large landscape format, clothbound book, are paintings. Unlike the cover artwork, the older races are done in a style more appropriate to their period.
And lastly, if you've heard about our weather blast from this past weekend—lots of trees and wires down, due to high winds and a very wet heavy snow—you'll understand our need to NOT focus on winter. Captured by WoodenBoat magazine Art Director James Bartick, it's a time-lapse of the annual September Schooner Sail-in at our anchorage. If you're a bit A.D.D., or simply pressed for time, it's the best 40 seconds you'll spend this week.
