Depends on your style of boating. Hot Boat is steered towards river rats while Powerboat in more the offshore thing.

I lean towards Powerboat, but have to have 'em all so I don't miss anything. I do skip the last 10 pages or so of Hot Boat as there are usually a bunch of old flat boats that I'm not very interested in.

I agree totally. Cancelled my subscriptions of over 15 years to both rags. The size of their Manufacturer adds has definately influenced their reviews and Hot Boat has always favored the Lake Havusu and River crowd. Picked up Extreme Boats at the NYC Poker Run. Awesome mag! I also do Poker Runs America and Family Performance Boating.

There was an article in Hot Boat last month that was hands down the best racing article I have ever read.
It was about white water, jet boat racing on the Snake river.
I prefer Extreme Boat mag over both HB or PB though.

Have subscriptions to both. If I was forced to keep one, I would keep Powerboat. Better articles, pictures, and organization.

Hands down..........

Powerboat was recently purchased by a a fishing boat magazine.........I expect it to get worse than it already is........if you noticed their "NEW" larger format copied EXTREME BOATS who introduced it months before POWERBOAT. Extreme Boats has better coverage and article. They report info from the owners view of the rides and not by advertising dollars like the other two rags. Hot Boat just has lots of T&A and limited product focus but has been trying to expand that in recent issues.
