just looking for a few good Links...
Trawler & Ocean Motorboat Magazine
One of the best
sources of information on cruising boats and the cruising lifestyle.
The pages of PassageMaker have over the years provided a wealth of
practical insight into both cruising boats and the cruising lifestyle.
I have been pleased to have contributed several articles to PMM over the
years. My surprisingly popular Mini-Rant ads have also been a feature in
the magazine since it's launching. Read them in the magazine or here

Boatbuilder Magazine -
Journal of Boat Design and Construction. Much of the focus is presenting
hands on information for the "do-it yourself" builder and the
professional custom builder. The magazine is most useful for cruising boats
50-foot or smaller. It is an interesting read with several very qualified
designers as regular contributors. Note:

WorkBoat Magazine -
In Business on the Coastal and Inland Waters. Workboat is a very commercial magazine involved with everything from
pilot boats to tug boats to offshore supply vessels and beyond. It
is a good source for seeing how the commercial guys do things, and what
equipment and systems they use. It is largely distributed in the
trade but is presumably also available by general subscription.
P0 Box 1792
Lowell, Massachusetts 01853-9994
The magazine for those working in design, construction and repair. Largely related to production boat building this magazine presents articles on all manner of design and construction. Its' focus is clearly for professionals working in a broad range of disciplines. Again it is widely distributed in the trade, but is presumably also available by general subscription.
