This time of year is a busy one on the engineering side of my life, and with Christmas coming up family deserve special attention as well. So Denny, Sarina, Brendan and their families all get visits and I’m out shopping for stocking fillers and gifts. All this means that there is not much happening on the boating front so instead of “doing” I’m reading a little before lights out of an evening.
Richard Palmer contacted me a little while ago, outlining his plans to produce a monthly on line magazine focused on small boats, traditional boats, history and notable voyages, and in fact pretty much anything that would be of interest to “us” kind of people.
He’s UK based, and focused, and his contributors include some UK characters prominent in the small boat cruising world, plus designers such as Paul Fisher, Mik Storer and myself.
I wrote a bit for this issue and have been very much looking forward to seeing what he produced. The first magazine is “here” now. Do enjoy the read, this is a great start to what I hope will be a wonderful, well targeted magazine for the small boat enthusiast.
The first edition is a free one and wow! I’ll be subscribing, so should you!
An apology, I cant get the link to work straight out of this text, its possibly a guard against accessing subscriber material so you'll have to cut and paste it into your browser, that works fine.
