To: WoodenBoat Devotees

Here's something new... well, new color: our Navy Blue STILL BOAT CRAZY T-shirt with Tan silkscreening. We still have a few sizes left in the Khaki/Chocolate version, but the mills have discontinued that color, hence the new Navy. Life in the "fashion" lane.

If you have been patiently waiting, your time has come. The book EB White on Dogs compiled by his grand-daughter, Martha White, is now available in paperback. And yes, we still have the hardcover edition if you need one for your "keeper" shelf. We also still have One Man's Meat. If you're not familiar with our tie-in to EB White, his son Joel started Brooklin Boat Yard, and we carry quite a few Joel White Designs.

Just released! The new on-line March issue is of Small Boats Monthly. There are a couple of unique boats featured, and amongst the articles is a product review of the new SOS Distress Signal Light, where they ponder just how many flares you bought and never used. And we ponder, if you're not already subscribing to Small Boats Monthly, why not? Don't overlook the Editor's Page for an interesting bit on galling.

Lastly, long-time WoodenBoat Forum member, sailor, boatbuilder, and remote area nurse Bernadette Marley of Australia made the news for her amazing self-rescue. The headline reads: "Injured Queensland nurse swims through shark-infested waters for help." That swim was with a fractured pelvis, back, and ankle. Bern is quite remarkable indeed. For more click Bernadette. The article link is in the 2nd posting.
