Agree with lightning jet too. HB had an era that was almost as good as PB back in the day.
One of the things I always found interesting was when comparing PB classifieds of old to new was exact opposite in content. Early days was a lot of smaller boats, O/B's and do it yourself stuff. Now (and last 10 yrs) it's almost all high zoot big stuff and professional ad's. Always wondered if the market really did dictate that (I know the trend was larger boats but did people STOP buying smaller stuff??) or the new direction of the magazine towards all high end stuff and the advertising $$$ from those builders regardless of what we the readers wanted??? I know I wrote letters and was not the only one stating same.
Makes it tough now too when magazines are $6. per and more! You definitely need to keep my attention for more than a few min's for that kind of jing!
