Looks like it's going to be a great issue. Mine is on it's way.

It is a great issue. The McKenzie Drift Boat article was wonderful, compelling, and summed up so well why we all love boats, wood boats, and boatbuilding-- even though I have no interests in drift boats!

The Friendship Catboat is beautiful.

And there's a Goat Island Skiff!

I'm not so keen on the new font for the "Small Boats" on the cover, now it doesn't match all the other past issues, as I am King-Lord of Things Matching this quibble bothers me.

Haven't seen it yet--who wrote the drift boats article? I'm thinking it might be my friend and fellow Grand Canyon whitewater runner, Greg Hatten. Took a 24-day trip with him and that guy knows how to row whitewater for sure. I guess I'll see it soon.

I finally got to the news stand and bought a copy. Usually there are a few interesting designs, but this year just about every boat is a winner. I am enjoying it very much.

Received mine in the mail today. Congratulations to the Forum's own John Hartmann and his Ilur, WAXWING, the subject of the final article in this issue.

Sounds like a SRR reunion on glossy paper.

Damn. I have to wait 'til Christmas.

Rich, thanks for the kind words. Geoff Kerr wrote a lovely piece about Waxwing. Ben Fuller's article about the Goat Island Skiff is also nifty, as sail & oar designs are of particular interest to me, but the issue was chock-a-block with very cool boats of all stripes....

And didn't we have fun at the Small Reach Regatta. Next year, new places to launch and explore.

With so many different small boats being built skin-on-frame anymore, I was slightly bummed to see they didn't include it in the article on wooden boat construction methods.

Did anyone find the Houseboat article uniquely appealing. I for some reason loved it and so did my wife. I've never been a fan of them but for those of us without small kids the idea is awesome to have a boat so well suited to just cruising around.

I currently have a sv27 that I take to the lake when we go out on our family boat. That boat doesnt seem to be well suited for a large lake the waves are just too large for it. Since I dont have room for a larger r/c boat I was thinking about trying one of the small self-righting starter boats. Do you guys think this is a good approach? Any recommendations?
