August 2020 Archives - Small Boats Magazine

In this issue, we meet Brko, a Croatian fisherman who makes lobster traps worthy of any art museum, and tour Lake Riffe in Washington’s Cascade foothills. Paul Gartside’s Centerboard Lugger and Walt Simmons’s Ducktrap Wherry are the subjects of our boat profiles, and we take a look at Discovery View dry bags and inexpensive but effective hook scrapers.  Alex Zimmerman, who knows a lot about lighting, makes the case for upgrading shop lights from fluorescent tubes to LED strips. Frank Turner is the builder of our Reader Built Boats, four strip-built canoes, one for every member of his family.
