To: WoodenBoat Devotees

The brand new February edition of Small Boats Monthly has just hit the ether-waves, and includes a planing cat-rigged sharpie under 14 feet, designed in the 1950s and still tearing it up today. And there's a dory by CD Mower, drawn in the 1890s and recently built by Thad Danielson. Plus you'll get to climb aboard a John Welsford (NZ) designed pocket cruiser in the reader-built feature. If you're new to Small Boats Monthly, it's the on-line magazine from WoodenBoat. Although there is not a print version, the future print Small Boats magazines will include features from the digital monthly. And, if you've not yet seen the Small Boats magazine (we must have been remiss...) click Small Boats Print or Small Boats Download for more.

If you saw our last e-newsletter, you may have noticed we added two of our half-hull model plans to our digital collection. The good news is we now have four more available as downloads. Click Digi Half-hulls to see Petrel, Shadow, Schemer, and Wave.

More good news: word is the John Leather book about Albert Strange will be back in print in the near future. This was originally published 25 years ago, and was commissioned by the Albert Strange Association. Stay tuned.

And lastly, if you are aware of John Brooks' (author, How to Build Glued-Lapstrake Wooden Boats) lapstrake variation of the famous Herreshoff and beloved Haven 12 -1/2s, you'll get a kick out of a time-lapse video of a build, posted on our WoodenBoat Forum. Click Somes Sound to view the video.
