Good Old Boat

This March/April 2006 issue
features a painting by
artist Jim Dewitt.

Good Old Boat, founded in 1998 as a journal for sailors who love older model boats, is published bimonthly from Maple Grove, MN.

The publication, in the words of its editors, is about:

  • Creating a community of sailors - through our directory of sailing organizations and contacts, we're developing links between sailors.
  • Offering a resource - By pooling the knowledge of our readers, we're creating a directory of the suppliers of parts and services we all need.
  • Keeping our boats afloat - Our technical articles focus on maintenance and upgrade issues and give them the space they deserve.
  • Celebrating older-model sailboats - We emphasize pride of ownership.
