From the Good Old Boat guidelines:

We publish articles focused on pride of ownership and articles that discuss upgrades, maintenance, refits, and restoration of good old boats. We also publish sailing stories in which the writer messed up and lived to tell us about it, to teach us what they learned. We like thoughtful ruminations on the sailing life. We also publish histories of the companies and personalities associated with the sailing industry.

Because these themes are well-covered by other magazines, we do not publish:

  • Destination articles
  • Cruising logs
  • Racing coverage
