NRG News - COVID-19

March 24, 2020 2:16 PM | David Eddy


We are finalizing plans for the October 15-17 NRG Conference at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum. All the meeting and tour details are finalized with speakers being the only thing yet to be finalized. Work is ongoing to tie down speakers. We are proceeding with the assumption that things will be back to normal by the time of the Conference.


To all our members and friends, the Directors and Officers of the Nautical Research Guild send our hopes and wishes that you and your families are safe and healthy during this difficult time. Many of you are at a more vulnerable stage in life, so the practices of self-isolation or self-quarantine are vital to everyone’s protection.

The NRG office is open for business. It might take a little longer than usual to respond, but we are ready to answer any questions regarding the Guild. We are fully stocked and as long as the USPS is operating, orders will go out as normal.

The NRG is doing our part to help stop the spread of the virus with all NRG Directors, Officers, Editorial and Office staff working from home. This will cause no inconvenience to us or the NRG membership because that’s how we operate all the time! Staff social distancing is no problem. Except for our Office Manager and Chairman sharing the same space, all directors, officers and other staff are keeping more than the recommended separations – 1 each in CA, AZ, MT, NC, NJ, TX and 2 in NM.


This is the perfect time to catch up on reading Journal articles you have been meaning to sit down and read or maybe that great book you bought after reading a review in the Journal.

Our Model Ship World forum ( is as active as ever. If you are getting ‘cabin fever’ log in to MSW and chat with other modelers. You can also look at some of the many build logs to get inspiration for your own models. Visitors are always welcome. Have a problem with your build? Model Ship World is a great place to get answers.

Miss your local club meetings? Model Ship World offers safe social interaction. With over 35,000 members, it is a great place to get answers and interact with other modelers – at a safe distance.

If you like what you see and are not currently a member of MSW, it is free to join! You will never receive any spam by joining and your information is never shared with any other organization or company.

We wish you well in these troubled times.
