FLIBS19: New refit publication launches at FLIBS

Nov 1, 2019 by Triton Staff

The publishers of Professional BoatBuilder magazine have launched at FLIBS a new title focused on the technical side of refits.

The Repair & Refit Report is a free online journal for boat repair and refit professionals. It features a mix of original and aggregated content comprising  stories, interviews, photos and video, and will be updated biweekly. Industry professionals can subscribe free at refitreport.com.

The new publication is edited by Jon Wilson, founder of WoodenBoat and Professional BoatBuilder magazines.

“Repair & Refit Report answers the need for sharing repair- and refit-related information and experience among marine industry professionals, especially in the intricate aspects of planning, engineering, and fabricating that take place behind the scenes in major yacht and vessel refits,” Wilson said. “We’re proud to launch this initiative at FLIBS, where so many industry professionals will be gathered.”

The premiere articles include a photo essay of Commodore’s Boats’ crabber vessel refit, a technical description of Lyman Morse’s ballast keel removal and reinstallation on a Swan, an interview with James Brewer of Derecktor Shipyards, and more.

The online journal is seeking writers and article ideas. Communicate via editor@refitreport.com.
