Marine industry veteran and award-winning journalist Eric Colby has joined the staff of OuterLimits Powerboats as Media and Marketing Consultant. Primarily, Colby will be responsible for producing new editorial content for the OuterLimits Powerboat website, which will be expanded to include original articles and features.

“Eric brings a wealth of experience to the OuterLimits team,” said company president Mike Fiore. “He is known for being straightforward and telling it like it is, which is something we want him to continue to do at OuterLimits.”

Initially, Colby will concentrate on writing press releases that will get the performance boating community updated on everything happening at OuterLimits. When the editorial section of the website is expanded, the articles will include features on OuterLimits customers and reviews of new OuterLimits models. “We want Eric to be as honest and objective as he always was when he reviewed the boats for the magazines,” explained Fiore. “If he sees something he doesn’t like, we can correct it, which will only make our products better.

A former Editor of Powerboat Magazine and contributor to Boating Magazine, Colby has known Fiore for 20 years. That friendship will make it easy for Colby to transition easily into his position with the company.

Colby is 46 and married to wife Carrie. They have two children, Blake, 9, and Makenna, 6, and they live in Raymond, Maine, where they boat on Sebago Lake.
