Performance boat sales is a miniscule market in the total scheme of things.
When the world was healthy the performance mags caught chit from everyone when they had normal craft mixed in.
When you print something that has nothing but our hobby's stuff in it and the market dies, you end up having to shrink your mag.
Think OL, Fountain, Baja, MTI, Mystic,Nortech.....can you imagine how much their ad dollars have shrunk?
Kudos to the few mags that are hangin in there to entertain us. Firstly their ad volume in total is way way back , as well as their pricing structure is backwards big time.
The mags that arent around at all were obviously deemed less productive by the advertisers who formerly supported them.
One of the magazines that stopped printing left some bills unpaid on their way out.
That would be NED.
