intheboatshed.net has been doing particularly well in the past couple of months, not least in terms of the numbers of people calling by to read our daily posts. As I write, we’ve had almost 34,000 hits, which I’m told makes us very successful for a weblog about a minority activity. While I would agree that we’re not doing too badly, I’d also suggest that perhaps the people who admire traditional boats constitute quite a large minority, as minorities go…
I’m particularly pleased today as we’ve had a delightful message of support from the great US writer and editor Peter H Spectre, as you can see at the bottom of this page: https://intheboatshed.net/?page_id=2#comment-2190.
Peter was editor of Woodenboat for many years, and has written and co-written a string of classic texts about boating, and about the techniques of traditional boat building, repair and restoration, and painting and varnishing.
Sharp-eyed readers will have noticed that his dazzling weblog reviewing the literature of traditional boats and boating appears in our links column on the right-hand side of this page, but I’d also like to mention that Peter writes a column for a magazine called Maine Boats and Harbours. Read it here:
Finally, check out Peter’s books in thebookshop. Quite a few will be interesting, and some may be essential!
