Here’s a preview of what’s inside the May issue.

Building Small Wooden Boats

Nate first fell in love with the small boat when, as a 17-year-old, he joined the WoodenBoat School’s ‘Fundamentals of Boatbuilding’ course. “At the end of the afternoon, you go down to their waterfront and go sailing in your choice of wonderful wooden boats.

To the delight of all, there was good pressure at the start, and indications were that it would hold deep into Baja California on the way to Cabo.
