Our "Boating" collection

Boating magazine

Boating magazine, Febrary 1971.


Under the name of Popular Boating, this journal was first published in October 1956; in 1966, it was acquired by Ziff Davis in Chicago, Illinois, and became simply Boating; since then it has been acquired by the Bonnier corporation in Winter Park, Florida. Our collection is complete from 1980 to 1996, incomplete elsewhere (1957 to 2006.)

Left: from the February 1971 issue - the "HMS Rose", a photo by Edwin Hills. This replica of a British frigate of the 1770s was sailing off the New England coast - only the courtesy "stars and stripes" was not a copy of the original.

This is currently (January 2021) a work in progess, to rationalise, facilitate and expand our existing pages at the Naval Marine Archive. Some pages are very recent, some date back twenty years and may or may not have been reviewed and/or edited recently; we appreciate any suggestions for improvements.
