What better way to spend a winter day than reading through the Winter Issue of the Rudder.  The pictures just make you feel warmer.  And it helps you plan your winter work on your boat to get ready for spring.

Active members list getting this award-winning magazine four times a year as one of the prime benefits of membership in the Antique and Classic Boat Society.  The quarterly magazine includes human interest stories, some technical advice, some historical lessons, news of the organization, and always gorgeous pictures of boats and boating events.

This Winter Issue  includes the first quarterly message from our new Executive Director – meet Dan Gyoerkoe.  Chapter leaders share “best practices” and glean new ideas of what is working for other chapters.  And how many of you turn first to the classifieds?
