Unbeknown to me, there has been a blog companion to WoodenBoats’s Getting Started in Boats series. It seems to be written now by Karen Wales, an associate editor at WoodenBoat. If this insert series is interesting to WoodenBoat readers, then the blog might be a useful tool to go along with it. It seems to have suffered a long hiatus until recently and I am hopeful that Ms. Wales is a new breath of fresh air to get it going again. Goodness knows, she has already had the great wisdom to point her readers to my series on building the Peace Canoe!.
