Shipping Magazines during lock down

This is a problem we all will have if not a subscriber.


With the lock down and W H Smiths closed where can we get the latest shipping magazines.
Very few stores with carry the extra mags as they consider them non saleable.


so your mission, (I think impossible) is can you let us know where is the best place to go in the local areas.


I know how difficult transport can be in places here in south wales its almost worst then Sunday service.


take care folks ad be safe


David

Mr Rawlinson is penning a few ditties on Bank Line in our brother website, let him whet your appetite.

Ships Monthly, Sea Breezes, Shipping Today and Yesterday.

3 magazines and one audience.

I buy one every issue, one regularly and one occasionally when the cover catches my eye. What are the buying habits of my colleagues and why is one chosen before the others.

I take - Ships Monthly - and a friend has - Sea Breezes - after we had read our copies we exchange said magazines. Saves a few shillings.
Both of course are available by post direct from printers. Mine from my local paperman.

Ships monthly - by post /subscription. Thinking of giving Sea Breezes a try since friend suggested it was ‘better’
Would welcome views….

Skerries,

I enjoy both of them. My one gripe with Ships Monthly is the very small type setting. This does make it difficult to read in certain light. Sea Breezes has far less about modern shipping but has very interesting articles. The magazine is slightly bigger and has much larger type.

I buy Ships Monthly, Sea Breezes, Shipping today and Yesterday, and of course marine News, Coastal Shipping. (and lately) Warship International. With Complete sets of the first 5.
the biggest problem is finding indexes, especially Sea Breezes

Sea Breezes discontinued their Indices in 1999 with the introduction of A4 format in Vol. 73.

Think like a ships engineer;

A touch of ad hoc'ery, make do, compromise, study nearest equivalent and if necessary steal.
You will have your Index in jig time.
