Back issues of Shavings - the newsletter of the Wooden Boat Association Inc.
Do you have a boat to sell? We welcome advertisments for the “Boatyard” section of Shavings, the Wooden Boat Association’s newsletter. We accept advertisements for wooden boats, and resources that would be of interest to our members. In the past this has included barometers, books, rope, engines, etc. Download our advertising form here.

Membership is open to all wooden boat enthusiasts. Many members own boats, others do not, but all enjoy the chance to get together and "muck about with boats". Their boats include rowing boats, putt-putts, radio controlled models, pond yachts, canoes, kayaks, steam-powered boats, sailing dinghies, dayboats and ocean-going yachts.
The Wooden Boat Association is based in Melbourne, with regular sailing days scheduled on Albert Park Lake, as well as other venues around Melbourne, and at least one weekend each year elsewhere in the state.
Especially welcome is the first-time wooden boat builder or restorer, who can expect to receive ample advice and assistance in getting their dream onto the water.
