Small Craft Advisor
Welcome to your best and most immediate source for small boat, sailing and boat building features, in-depth reviews, adventure articles and how-tos.
Longtime SCA readers will know most of this, but maybe this is your first visit. For those of you new to these waters, for 22 years we produced an international print magazine. You can visit our website to learn more and order back issues, reprints, books and other boat-related gear. To hear more about why we moved from print to this new Substack platform, you can read this post.
The great thing about Substack is that you get articles and content—from small-boat photo essays to boat reviews to adventure articles to technical how-to’s—all directly in your e-mail box in real-time. (For info on limiting the number of e-mails you receive and other tips for getitng the most from Substack, see our article here. )
As a FREE Subscriber you will have access to a lot of excellent content and articles—both new and archival, but as a PAID Subscriber you will have access to ALL articles we publish here. You will also be able to comment and interact with authors and other readers in the comments section below each feature. And since we are a reader-supported publication (no paid advertising), by becoming a paid subscriber you help us to continue to offer the best possible content.
In any case, thanks for reading and welcome aboard!
