Dean, get over it.

If it's so out of touch why is it the #1 selling performance boating magazine? You speak for a small majority.

i subscribe to all of them, but they all pretty much pale incomparision to the internet anymore... i don't read much in the mags anymore because it is about 90-120 days behind... just the nature of print media i guess.... i still look at the pictures...

Family and Performance boat magazine dose alot of parts testing and alot of tech articles, although they aint always playing with the big buck boats I still think it's one fo the better ones out there.

Anyone seen the preview copy of Speedboat magazine? It is being published by Boating Magazine starting with the Jan 06 issue. They sent me one in the mail, and I thought it had quite a few interesting articles and a somewhat new approach to the high performance boating magazine.

I got EBM this year. They have a bit different approach and are doing stories on boats and people in the business, rather than the kinds of reviews in PB and hotboat. They aren't very regular in their releases though, they just kind of show up when they get one done. I think I have gotten 5 this year.

I've enjoyed that format so far. My hotboat expires next month, I think I am going to leave it expired and look for something else to replace it.
