Free magazines and books.

Post by jacquesmm » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:52 pm

BoatBuilderCentral is moving and I am busy emptying the attic.
Over the years, I accumulated hundreds of books and magazines. I keep some but will give away a very large amount.
Right now, I have 5 or 6 boxes of old boating magazines, some very old, some rare. For example, some are Rudder magazines from 1920. Some show the D-day boats. Many include plans. Most are from around the 50's: somebody gave me all his collection.
Others are Small Boat Journal and several years of Wooden Boats. I may give all my Wooden Boats away plus a couple years of Professional Boatbuilder. In that case, the total will be at least 10 boxes, maybe 12.
There is also a complete collection of Practical Handyman Encyclopedia, many with plywood boat plans. The HB houseboat series and the Plyak were drafted from those plans.
I give them all away, it's free but you must carry them downs stairs and you must take it all.

Local pickup only (Vero Beach), it is too heavy to ship, probably 3 to 400 lbs total.
Message me through the forum.

Man that is a treasure for someone close by. I would not be surprised if some of those are worth a bunch.

I would pay for some of that stuff to go in the library.

I like collecting the old books.

See if Jeff would do it. I have a bill to pay with him. I'll call him tomorrow.

Update: the magazines are still there and I did spend a couple more hours in the attic doing some inventory. Here is what I have to give away:
- a complete collection of Professional Boat Builder from number 1 to last month, 25 years total, a real boatbuilding encyclopedia.
- about 15 years of Boat Builder magazine, between 150 and 200 mags many with free plans. This mag does not exist anymore.
- at least 100 of Small Boat Journal. Many plans in those ones. This is an old magazine, not published anymore but with great content, some rare Bolger plans.
- a full set of Handyman Encyclopedia, many with boat plans
- hundreds of Wooden Boats mags.
- between 200 and 300 old magazines, the oldest one is a Rudder from 1924, most are from 1940 to 1955. I kept them because I like the styling of some of those boats.
-miscellaneous mags with plans, some from Australia.

All that was bought or given to me over 30 years but I guess it is about 500 lbs total, I don't want to move it. Local pick up preferred but I am thinking of shipping it on a pallet. The magazines are free to any member of our forum but if you want it shipped, we will ask you to pay for it.

I hate to put it on the local Craigslist, I prefer one of our builders to have it.

Have Jeff get me a price on the freight for a full pallet of it. I need 15 more gallons of resin, too. It can come on same pallet.

I will sell enough of it to pay the costs and keep the ones I want.

Jeff has my number.

I don't expect the condition to be perfect, but I don't want them if they are all watermarked and water damaged. It is a pet peeve for me. Thanks for any consideration.

Fall guy, those are old magazines, they look old, they are not museum pieces. I went through them to get ideas about design and left sticky notes here and there. There is no water damage, no pages stuck together.
I posted on Duckworks too, I have many friends there but I give you first pick. Let's see what we can do about shipping on Monday.
