    Re: If you ran a boating mag, what would YOU put in it??

    Actually I have never subscribed to or bought a Offshore Magazine for just the reasons I listed above. I'm not destitute but don't and probably won't ever have a half or nearly half million dollar boat. Or lifetime payments, it's just my plicy to pay cash for toys.
    But on the other hand. More power to those who can and/or will afford the big bucks stuff. I like to see EveryOne have nice things.

    I'd like to see articles about researching, buying and maintaining used boats. I find information about classic boats and the history of boat manufacturers to be interesting as well.

    Use the Road&Track-type format.
    Take like 4 or 5 similar-type boat configurations, within a certain price/power range, and wring em out in pre-determined tests ( based upon their intended function ). Rank them in order, and illustrate the highs and lows of each.
    Articles on tech, safety, new products, accessories and apparel, trailers, destinations, and new regulations / legislation as it affects boaters. A how-to section.
    Maybe a section at the end for unique / funny boat names, boating stories, funny photographs.
    Articles that crap all over sailboaters, and an editorial section that is continually updated as to pending lake and waterway restrictions - in order to keep up public awareness as our rights are being stripped away.

    And a section dedicated to wicked hot chicks in swimsuits.

    I'd like to see a 'spotlight of the month' in each issue.
    This would be an article on someone's personal boat.
    And it should be something different and coolin.
    Not some run of the mill performance boat, but something different.
    With great power, comes great responsibility.

I'm glad to say that Powerboat wants feed back from its readers (and people who used to be readers) on how to make themselves better. I think a lot of you think PBM comes off as arrogant and not caring about their subscribers/readers, but it is indeed the exact opposite. Gregg is doing an EXCELLENT job at taking in feedback and putting it directly back into the mag. He wants to make you guys happy. This is your opportunity to get things you want to see into the magazine.

    Now, keep the criticism coming. As long as it is constructive and it'll help, it is appreciated. Thanks again.
    These are the type of threads I really like to see here. Constructive.

    I'm sure they are working a difficult angle, being a national Mag. West coast generally supports a certain type of boat (mid-cabin, Jet, V-drive - some Offshores. I still haven't figured out the cat deck boats running 100mph - It's a pontoon with a big power
    You'd get eaten alive in anything but a small lake.) - must be a West coast thing.
    PB is trying to appeal to all coasts - that is a tough gig to get into.
    Analogy - everyone likes the Beatles, how can you not? Not everyone likes Black Sabbath - different strokes baby.
    It is a tough nut for PB to crack - to get the entire market, without pizzing some people off.
    I do appreciate the fact that you are doing some quantified market research for them.
    I enjoy the magazine, the photos are great, but some of the copywrite could be more realistic.
