    A little, but not much. Got out of the habit of reading for a while. Now eyes are better, but it's hard to get back into reading.

    I do. Maybe not cover to cover every issue, but most of it.

    I do. I try to close my eyes at the pictures. The articles are wonderful.

    I still have my subscription (have had it for about 40 years), but I admit I don't send as much time with an issue as I used to. The earlier issues all but smelled like tar and hemp. The new issues are a bit glossy.

    I've been subscribing since issue #17. I read each new issue bit by bit to make last.
    I don't save them, though.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Hey! That's my friend Greg Hatten rowing his boat PORTOLA through Grand Canyon, I think. Probably taken during a trip I was on. (Or maybe not). Neat boat--is that from a recent issue of WB?

    As I will no longer have a boat shop by next November, and having many years back issues in my library, I have just stopped my subscription. Along with that will go a colection of boatbuilding books, tools, etc. For some years now I have been repairing wooden boats anyhow, not building from scratch.But Istii enjoy reading back issues and keep a few by the chair for when I do get a chance to sit down!

    I haven't been a subscriber of WB for about a decade now, only occasionally flipping-through at the bookstore or library. I subscribed to Small Boats for a couple of years, but that lapsed as well.
    I've had the thought that Santa should hook me up again this year. I'll have to wait and see.

    I buy it and read the stuff that's particularly interesting to me, but not everything. I no longer have a wooden boat so it's mostly just to be loyal to a publication that's given me so much joy over the years. Kind of like every time we go up there we stop by the campus, just to see if anything's changed. It's a 'hygga' kind of thing, and I don't see anything wrong with that.

    Yes, but not in the depth I once read it. I had set from 1984 on and gave the back issues away in 2020. Don't really miss them and it cleared out a bookcase

    Yes. Still the best magazine that gets the atmosphere of boating.

    used to look forward to stopping at the bookstore to buy it off the newstand.

    no bookstore anymore. no newstand anywhere.

    is it time yet for a magazine devoted to old magazines. with articles on how to rehab and care for your old magazines. even how to create and print your own new old magazines, with glossy paper and particularly expensive ink. how to forge your own binding staples. etc.
