Wanted - Old Sailing Magazines
 
Does anyone have some back issues of "Good Old Boat" or "Practical Sailor" magazines that they don't want? I'll pay shipping, of course. I am new to sailing/boat ownership and find both magazines stuffed full of good info.

Thanks,

Drew

Drew we have many Practical Sailors probably dating back at least to 2017. PM your address and I will determine shipping if you are still interested.

Both “Good Old Boat” and “Practical Sailor” have archived issues on their websites.

Japawil,

Thanks. Yes, I know both have archives online but Good Old Boat charges for back issues and I just prefer reading stuff on paper. When I owned an airplane, I had a decade of old magazines and donated them to a guy just getting into flying and though perhaps someone had old sailing magazines they might not want.

Regards,

Drew

I get it. [emoji106]
If you caught me a couple years ago when I retired and sold my house, I would have happily obliged.
Unfortunately I got rid of stacks of those very same magazines.
It was because the old issues were available online, that I was convinced to let the physical copies go.
Sorry [emoji20]

I know what you mean.....that is why I got rid of the flying magazines. We were moving and my wife kept insisting I throw out "those stinky old magazines". I gave them to another Mooney pilot and I'm sure he read them cover-to-cover.

Do you still want this? I have several years of both and I am just about to send them to the dump. However, shipping will be dear, the stuff is heavy and I'm in Toronto, let me know if you are interested.
