In response to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, and to help ease your time while practicing social distancing, we have decided to make the digital edition of WoodenBoat No. 274 (May/June 2020) free for all to read and enjoy. Please share this digital edition with all friends and family you think might enjoy, or need, a fun distraction. If you like what you see and wish to hold the print edition in your hands, you are welcome to order it here, and if you’d like to become a subscriber and receive this wonderful magazine all year, you may do so here.
We can assure you that our long commitment to the quality, integrity, and reliability of what we publish and produce here, and our long commitment to our customers—readers and advertisers—remains as unassailable as ever. We can already see that the business of our industry is not ceasing; it’s merely going through an adjustment, and we intend to support that as fully as ever. We are in this together, and all of what we do, going forward, will reflect that commitment.
With sincere best wishes from all of us,
Andrew Breece, Publisher WoodenBoat Publications
A note to our international print subscribers: Due to ongoing interruptions in international delivery service, we are not mailing your print copy of the May/June issue. Please enjoy it in digital format instead. Your subscription term will be extended by one issue and we hope to resume normal service with the July/August issue.
