From “Good Old Boat” magazine ~ Three new resources for boaters:

Ask the experts … where boater’s find answers from those In the Know
BoatU.S. is developing a new service called Ask the Experts on their webpage at http://my.boatus.com/askexperts/

This page will grow as more experienced boaters join the panel of experts. Keep an eye on this page as it expands in the year ahead.

New Boaters Community website
The website http://www.boatersbasement.com has auctions, forums, education links and a store front.

A sailing search engine
You don’t have to “google” everything, particularly if what you’re looking for has to do with sailing and sailboats. Try http://www.sail-search.com for a new look at this new niche. Alan Straton is the genius behind this search engine.

***

The October issue of the “Good Old Boat” newsletter is posted at:
http://www.goodoldboat.com/newslette...ewslett44.html

To get there another way: go to their home page
http://www.goodoldboat.com and click on the starburst by their webmaster's name at the bottom of the page.

That should be really informative. They are a fantastic rag.
I had 2 magazine subscriptions over the last few years. Lats & atts, and Good Old Boat. Latts I started because Bob and I go back a lifetime. Good Old Boat, because I emailed the editor on something, and got such a personal response, I realized these people are for real. I only kept one subscription. With shallow pockets I am sure you can guess which one.

Good old boat is very good. Karen is a great editor, has a feel for the right pulse. Old freind of mine here in Australia writes the occaisional article for the mag and turned me onto it. Karen and I now swap subscriptions and maybe articles sometime. I publish a boatie paper. If you want a free copy you can download the pdf file from the web site for the last two editions.. about 2 meg each

www.thecoastalpassage.com

Last issue have an article on keeping the bug at bay in diesel fuel. No small matter here in the tropics.

Excellent magazine - “The Coastal Passage” - though my old eyes found the typesetting a little hard to read.

Greetings

Sorry this took a long time... I lost rack of the thread and perhaps you may too!! Anyway, in case you get this... Look at the top of the screen for + and - signs... you can enlarge to fit old eye balls.. Trust me on this... I leave a dozen pairs of reading glass's around the boat.. in three varieties of magnification... reading big print, small print and OH s..t what is that!!

I got a real kick out of Karens last editorial...

And I see you have a good practical article in there. GOB is the best in the world for technical stuff.

I am pleased that you were able to read enough to have a good word for the rag. thanks mate!

Cheers

Now that's an improvement. I too have reading glasses stashed everywhere. Yet, I can never find the darn things when I need them. A curse of getting older I guess.
