Old School Communication Can Still Be A Work Of Art!

I just got my latest issue of Classic Boating magazine….Looks great with it’s glossy cover and killer photo’s. The highlight of this issue is Dick Kish’s 1947 Gar Wood Sedan with Chris Smith at the helm. I can feel you all reading thinking, here it comes, WoodyBoater is about to slam Classic Boating for it’s lack of online exposure. Just like the ACBS… It ain’t gonna happen! And here is why – Classic Boating magazine is a magazine, and has clearly chosen to stay that way. No website, not even sure if they have a fax machine yet. They have not gone half way…It’s all one thing. And you know what, the hobby is all about that… I applaud that, not that Classic Boating needs my adulation, or nod… in fact I need there’s. The articles are dead on. The one by Don Danenberg on serial number punches is very timely and much needed. Thanks Don… The article on Steam boats was also timely for me, since I had just spent a day talking with a guy about steam boats…. OK it was an hour, it just felt like a day… Anyway. The timelessness of Classic Boating is why I will always subscribe and no doubt why they are worth the same used as they are new. Way to go Norm and Jim…. Stay the course….

    I believe that’s Don Danenberg, Matt.

    So, how do I subscribe? Do they at least have an e-mail address?

    Ha! No I checked that one big time, the kish’s are the nicest folks on the planet. And that boat is amazing. There is a reason that a painted sedan has won every heart in the hobby. The wow factor when you are with’n 10 feet of it through the roof. Witch by the way is also very cool.
