Default Family & Performance Boating Mag?...

Just re-started a subscription to these folks again despite my last subscription showing me only 3 issues. I know they had some start up problems but are they getting better at delivering? I like their format and everday boater information/articles. I hope they come thru this time...

I had simular problems with their delivery. I could get the magazine at the local newsstand before I received my issues. I think if I purchase any more issues it will be at the newsstand.

I just started a subscription with them in December, recieved two (2) issues so far.....everything seems OK, but I was concerned with all the trouble other people on the board were having.

The only bad side - the issues show up on the newstands almost a week before I receive them in the mail.

*****, *****, *****, You guys don't know how lucky you are. I have never been able to find FPB and any newstand around here. At least you can get it.

Same experiance had a subscription last year got three issues than nothing. Now I've gotten two invoices, saying I should have received my first issue and I owe them $19.99. I liked the magazine but they need to work on their distribution. I'll try to find it at the book store.

If it wasn't for the fact I can't find them anymore around here on the stand, I wouldn't have sent off the $19.99 to renew. I'm taking the gamble of aggravation because I do like their magazine....
