We all share the same interest in Hi-Performance Powerboats.
With today's economy the number of Powerboat owners has been dropping...
We all need to stick together to keep it alive and well whether you own or no longer own a performance boat.
In some cases, a person may no longer own a boat due to the economy, but we must try to keep these people involved with the sport so that when the economy turns around, they want to go back out and buy a boat.
Performance Boats Mag has a lot on its shoulders now because being one of the few print mags left on the news stands, they will have to keep the reading audience excited about the sport or they too can fall to the wayside just like any of the others.
I wish them the very best and I am always here to help in any way that I can....
Performance Boaters Moving Forward !
A Classic moment here when the bar ran out of beer. Dave P put in call to have cases delivered for our FUN RUN Luncheon and the Performance Boat Mag crew.

Good Morning Shark
That was a fun run from Atlantic City. Although the water got rough.
Was that 08 or 09? Time flies.
Hope you can join us for drinks or grub while in Miami.

KAP, I'll happily answer your question as to one site and not the other. For articles, we pay the writers, we are happy to have Tank on board, and will most likely be adding more into the future as we reformat the site to hold more editorial content.
As for posting, PB's forum does not receive the amount of posts that it should for a board of it's size. They get very little new posts per day, compared to this place or RDP. That isn't an opinion, nor is it libel.. It's a fact, go click the new posts button each morning and see for yourself.
KAP, if you're gonna dissect anything in the future, please learn the "multi-quote" function on a forum it makes it so much easier for people to understand the point of your posts.. The only one of which I'll be addressing right now as it's relevant to me.
KAP, your logic is leaving somewhat to be desired here. So every employee of every company in the world is a nut swinger?
I think it'd be far more safe to say a person with zero interest (except for perhaps some future promises.. of maybe some coverage of a new boat? LOL) making posts like the one in this thread, or several others on PB, are far more likely to be construed as the above..
In short, I'd say you're using someones nuts as a hand up to put your lips on a certain persons ass.. Careful with that KAP, because ya never know how long they will be around either.
I don't want you coming to me 6 months from now tugging on my nuts. I'd rather it just be a handshake, with some quality content.
I think I pretty well addressed that above.
I didn't quote it, but I'd suggest you take your own advise look in the mirror KAP.. I have no idea what you're interest is, but your agenda is clear, and has been for quite some time.
Let me know when you're new Pom Pom's arrive, because the current ones are getting worn thin. (seriously)
Jesus Chris.. LOL I'll admit it was funny (the resume part)
Since you have opened yourself up on a public forum though and not on your own.. You're also subject to one of KAP's so called cross examinations..
Would it be fair for me to put "PERFORMANCE BOATS IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS" on the front of my site? I think you would answer no (or at least I would hope that's what you would answer)
Rule # 1 of business is to make money.
You yourself have told me PB hasn't made money, and your biz plan was to lose 100K this year. You have also told me that you have sunk close to a million over a year ago. (direct from the horses mouth on both accounts)
Logic dictates no money being made = failed biz. Sooner or later it's gonna go under. Unless it starts making some at some point? (Which is doubtful in this market)
So would it be irresponsible of me in an effort "to be first" with breaking news to put that online? The answer is yes..
The fact is, the magazine hadn't sold yet when that article hit. They had a "letter of intent" to purchase. I was well aware of it as well, and you didn't see me put it online, because to do so would've been irresponsible.
The fact that it ended up true in a short time frame afterwards, doesn't excuse the original problem. It then becomes more of a question of "timeline" in the examples set above. When is it acceptable to report rumors as facts, when it's close to happening? Or when it's a year out? Or 6 months?
The answer is simple.. and it's never.
