1963 Popular Boating Magazine and Boating Advertisements

Well it seems that William James Bookseller book shop is back on the radar......... Sweet Pea and I stopped by and checked out the free book box out in front of the store this last weekend and I picked up a great, vintage, boating magazine.  It is a a copy of Popular Boating Magazine from June, 1963.  Not only does it have some great boating "how-to" articles that I can use with my own boat projects, it has some fantastic boat advertisements as well!  I did a few quick scans to give you an idea about the ads that are in it.  Here's a photo list of the more prominent boat company ads that are mixed throughout the pages:   "Bon Voyage" and enjoy the pictures!
