I usually leave the commentary on the Journal articles to others, but I have gone beyond my inspection of the proof copy of this issue.  I have been reading a couple of the articles off my computer screen because I couldn't wait for the printed copy.  This is unusual activity for me - I hate reading off the screen  (but not so much since I got the big 27" screen). 


I think the cover photo is fabulous as are the photos that accompany the article.  I think a lot of members will be very interested in the author's thoughts on the subject of updating dockyard-style modeling.


We should go to press Monday.

I am checking again with our mail service as it seems that several members in Australia have not received their issues yet.  When I spoke to them on Tuesday they said that the Australia issues are supposed to be delivered within 30 days of leaving NY.  They were shipped on 3-16 from NY so they should be delivered by now.  We are also tracking some missing issues for N. Ireland and several in the UK.


I would ask that any overseas members to send an email to info@thenauticalresearchguild.org to let us know the date when you receive/received this issue of the Journal.  Due to a mix up in Cuba, NY all but 3 or 4 non US members were mailed 2 issues of this Journal.  Please let us know if you get one or two copies also.  If you do not get a reply to your email to info@thenauticalresearchguild.org let Mary or me know with a PM here on MSW.  Several members seem to have a problem with receiving emails from the info@.... email, but get emails sent from Mary's personal email - please check your SPAM filter before sending a PM.


We are working to find out what has happened and we will make sure everybody gets their Journal.
