The magazine confirms the awful rumor
Laughs;; I was hoping for quite a few more
Wishing David Kasanof
content (ment) in his casting off
I for one will miss his humor

Good luck in your retirement, Mr Kasanof, it always amazed me how you came up with the laughs issue after issue. I wish I'd taken the time to chat with you when we shared space at River Bend Marina. Most of the workers who worked on the refit I was supervising were convinced you were an employee of the DEA., not that I was influenced by their suspicions.

I too will miss his monthly humor, he has been like one of the cornerstones of the magazines. Best wishes in retirement!

I bid him a very fond farewell. I think a humor column is a great idea for any specialty magazine.

He has certainly earned a happy retirement.I still chuckle when I recall his tales of walking to the shower block in a Connecticut marina in the middle of winter.It might explain the move to Florida.

Does he have a forum name? I wondered aloud a time or two on this forum (virtually aloud) whether he might be on here, gathering fodder from one of my builds. They are generally a comedy of errors.

He embodied the culture of wooden boats better than any other writer. I'll miss him.

Funny guy and always maintained the boat owner's point of view. Thanks for the laughs, Mr. Kasanof.

A WoodenBoat without David Kasanof is going to be like a Playboy without the jokes page behind the centerfold. Sad to see him go.

David Kasanof has put a smile on my face every two months for the last 30+ years. Very sorry to see him go. I used to wait until late in the evening to read his column. Humor is much more powerful when you're relaxed and comfortable in the evening.

I was going to start a thread and saw that it was done. Thank you, Mr. Kasanof.

Bump, there are some nice letters about David in #241. The magazine does not feel the same without him.

A good part of the magazine... he will be missed.

Playboy had jokes behind the centerfold?!

When I got my first WoodenBoat magazine in hands , his page was the first I read.
So I caught the whole magazine spirit.
And loved it.
Thanks Mr Kasanof !
I'd like to cross Content's route next year.
