Free Issue of Good Old Boat Magazine

I received an email from Good Old Boat this afternoon offering a free issue to all of the shut-ins, wishing they could get back to working on their boats and going sailing.

https://goodoldboat.com/MagazineDist...1-SFRZE20d.pdf

No strings.

I have always found it to be one of the most useful sailing magazines, with more down to earth how-to information and fewer boat show style adds.

You gotta read.

Re: Free Issue of Good Old Boat Magazine

I used to get a few sailing mags but got tired of the lame paid for boat reviews and ads. Good Old Boat is the only one I continue to receive!

Re: Free Issue of Good Old Boat Magazine

I've subscribed off and on to GOB for many years. Over the past couple of years the quality of the magazine has seen a marked improvement under editor Michael Robertson. The articles are more interesting and the advice and technical articles are well founded.

Recently Wendy Mittman Clarke joined the editorial staff, a great addition.
