Archive eXtractions

Release Date: April 4, 2013

These news items were important at the time of their release, but no longer have any urgency. These are archive copies.

You asked for it, you got it!

Our readers (that'd be you) told us in a survey in December that you'd like us to assemble collections of related articles. We've been doing exactly that ever since. We're calling them Archive eXtractions.

The newest of these is a collection of sailboats we've reviewed. We couldn't get all our boat reviews into one PDF collection of reasonable size, so we started with the 25- to 27-footers. Next we'll step it up a notch to the 28- to 30-footers. Then we'll go again, perhaps with a collection of 31- to 35-footers. (What will fit in that one remains to be seen. But we're all over the 28- to 30-foot sequel.)

We're also working on a collection of all the Ted Brewer articles we've published so far. This, too, will probably be distributed in two volumes. Ted Brewer wrote a LOT of articles for Good Old Boat!

Review Boats 25 - 27-footers

So far we have five Archive eXtractions ready to go:

  • Review Boats: 25- to 27-Footers
  • The Good Old Boat Galley Book
  • Sailboats 101
  • Boatbuilders
  • Boat Designers

Each one is $25 and available from our downloads site: They're in PDF format, so they're easy to download and easy to view no matter what your favorite computer or handheld device happens to be.

If you have a special request for any groupings of articles we haven't thought of yet, drop a line to
