To: WoodenBoat Devotees

Top-up: Did you know there's an easy way to update your digital collection of WoodenBoat back issues? We've grouped recent years (since we began producing our flash drive) and added a price break, so you can download whole years at a time. Click Annual Sets for the skinny.

The new 5th edition of Charlie Wing's Get Your Captain's License is now half the price as the prior edition. How often does that happen?

Basement discovery... we've just added a few color copies of "The" WoodenBoat issues #6, #7, #8, and #9 to our collection. Given that they've been buried in the magazine basement for quite some time, they're in pretty good shape, and even have that special parfum du cellar. Yes, supplies are limited.

And finally, if you've not been to the site recently, in-house designer extraordinaire Greg Summers has just made it prettier, handier, and mobile friendly, too. If your window is narrow, the site has the hamburger-style (triple bar) navigation option, plus it sizes itself based on your device. If you had seen the "subscriber only" content tab in the past, Greg eliminated that and has put those library videos and other bits up for everyone to enjoy. If you are a subscriber to the digital issue of WoodenBoat, click the Magazine heading, and you'll see the Digital Login. Now when you login for the digi issue, there are two links... to view the issue in your browser, and another link to download the issue to your drive. No more hunting for that download button. And one more of the many upgrades... the Boats for Sale section is now sortable by type, plus it's keyword searchable. And did we mention the site is prettier?
