A Word With...
Lee S. Wilbur
Q: When did
you first fall in love with boats?
Q: Did any
one boat have a major impact on your interest in becoming a builder?
Q: What do
you like most about the business?
of writing, you contribute monthly columns to a local trade newspaper.
How did that come about?
Q: Where are
you planning to go?
the most memorable cruise you’ve taken?
Q: What advice
would you give someone who wants to make a business out of building
and designing boats?
To keep pace with the times, the NMMA has added a large section to its Discover Boating Web site devoted exclusively to female boaters. “Women at the Helm” at www.discoverboating.com/women offers a variety of articles, columns, and tips to keep women of all skill levels and nautical backgrounds up to date on the latest boating issues.
Regular columns include “Woman of the Month,” which highlights interesting and accomplished boaters, and “Ask the Boating Moms,” in which two nautical pros address readers’ questions covering all manners of boating issues. For the cruising gourmands, there’s even a “Recipe of the Month” feature, which helps men and women alike get the most out of their galleys. Best of all, all of the information on the site is free.
