BW Catalogs Needed

Postby mdplunkett » Fri Feb 10, 2017 5:23 pm

Hi everyone,

The book, Unsinkable: The History of Boston Whaler, is nearly complete. Aside from a few edits to be made, the manuscript is done and I'm spending my time tracking down as many print quality (300dpi) photos as possible. As many (all?) of you know, Tom Clark put together a two-disc collection of every catalog from 1958-2003. Those images have been a tremendous resource for me, but the images are of insufficient resolution to print in the book.

To that end, I'm putting out a wide ranging call for physical copies of BW catalogs. I don't need every year, but I'll certainly err on the side of having too many. I've listed the first salvo of my wish list. If anyone has any (or all) of the years listed below, drop me a line. If you have a year that isn't listed, drop me a line. If you just want to say hello, go ahead and drop me a line.

Stop by the website or Facebook if you want more information on the book. Thanks again for the continued help.

Gary Creasey has generously loaned more than 20 pounds of catalogs to the effort. If I find I'm missing specific years, I'll reach out to the CW community again.

Thanks!
