Re: Small Boats Magazine
With portable GPS it is not impossible to get some performance data; xxxx knots in yyyy breeze. Able to maintain xxxx for a couple of miles rowing. Problem is that sometimes the writers don't have enough time in the boats, certainly the case in a couple of Small Boat projects in which I have been involved. Working it differently, taking lines off kayaks, Sea Kayaker manages to do this in their boat reviews.
And I second the note of a place to put materials that don't make it to the print form, in fact this is a useful suggestion for the magazine in general, electronic added content possibly as part of the subscription price. New Yorker is a good model for this, using the subscription ID materials to give you access to the electronic versions.
Ran Tan, Liten Kuhling, Vernon Langille, Josef W., Merry Mouth, Imp, Macavity and a quiver of unamed 'yaks.
