Default Hotboat magazine

Is Hotboat magazine still in business? I subscribed back in November and have not received any issues. There phone number is not working and they will not respond to email. Thanks,
Jeff

They are gone. Or, at a minimum, they are shut down and up for sale.

I think you signed up at the worst time possible (assuming they billed you and you paid already). Hope you didn't do more than a 1 year sub.

I received a 1 year gift subscription from my inlaws. She put it on her credit card. I wounder if she can get the charges reversed. A--holes should not have taken the money for the subscription it they could not supply the product.

My Meijers has the new powerboat everymonth. Little more expensive than just getting the subscription, but doesnt seem to be any shortage. Always there when I am looking, and quite a few stores carry it.

I like the information in it, seem to do pretty good reviews and pictures, lots of show coverage (shootouts/poker runs, etc...). Lots of pictures, some good used inventory ads from Shogren, Legend, Cumberland etc...

The tech articles and coverage are pretty cool too. See some pretty wild problems in the Teague on tech section, good answers to go along with them though.

I am a powerboat mag man.

Thanks for the replys. I just noticed there has been a prior post on Hotboat that has about 3 pages of post. Very interesting. Does vasoline come with the subscription? Seems I used to get a T-shirt.
