Hello all.

I'm looking for Thistle ads & articles from the 1950s and 1960s. In particular I'm looking for published info on D&M Thistle kit boats.

Is there another magazine(s) I should be checking as well?

Any info greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Bruce

Thistle #1177

WoodenBoat started publishing in 1974. The most extensive article on the Thistle class in our magazine was in WB No. 47, July/August 1982.

The Thistle class is still very active, and the old woodies are still competitive. Thistle #1 is still being actively raced.

The class association publishes "the Bagpipe", and many back issues are available at:

I haven't trolled through them all, and there isn't much advertising or a lot of pictures, but a good place to start.

Thistle #1609 (made of that other material, I'm afraid).
