WoodenBoat Magazine Index

Search the content of WoodenBoat magazine, back to our first issue in 1974. This easy-to-use index allows you to access WoodenBoat’s robust archive of skills, experience, craftsmanship, technical knowledge, history, community, and a whole lot more. You can do a title search to locate a particular article, or you can do a subject search for, say, a planking technique.

Navigate to the quietest backwater — do a title search for, say, the cover photo in a particular issue — or cast about in the open sea — do a subject search on, say, planking techniques, and browse through endless arrays of articles and illustrations on a wide range WoodenBoat’s decades of rich content.
