The boat advertising in magazines, poker runs, TV has dropped to Z E R O.....so if you magazine thrived on ad dollars then your magazine is in trouble.

Part of the Tribune's problem was the drastic drop in ad revenue.

Craigs List is not the best vehicle for selling a company like Hot Boat Magazine. That is where you go to buy an old TV or find a girlfriend for a hour.

It seems that just about everyone that was associated with,or writing for Hot Boat,is now with Performance Boats Mag. Don't know what happened,but Performance Boats Mag seems to be the new leader.
