Q. Where do you find your stories?
A. Our editors are passionate about all kinds of small boats, and are always seeking narrative pieces and boats for our profiles.

These subjects might include new equipment and techniques for boating and camping, people taking interesting trips, new water trails, and surprising topics that we might not have dreamed of.
