Default Powerboat Magazine History

I recently dug out my old collection of Powerboat Magazine, it goes back to the late 60's, Believe it or not I think Powerboat was once called Hotboat but anyway i am NOT interested in getting rid of them but if there is a interest i would be willing to get with someone who is better with a computer than i and do some scanning. The history in these magazines is unbelievable the racing coverage the performance reports the articles even the advertisment, its just awesome. My dad started the subscription way way back when and i just kept it going till this day. I am willing to share this info with any one that is interested but it is so much i just wouldnt know how or where to begin for it to be practical. Some people now complain about this and that about powerboat magazine now, but to see what it used to have like alot of waterskiing, jet boats ,drag boats ect. it is really interesting. If anyone has a interest or any ideas let me know.

Before it was called Hot Boat it was called West Coast Boating News.

All of them are probably not in print anymore or circulation or whatever you call it...so a letter of permission from Ehlert Publishing will be needed and could probably be obtained fairly easy, I would think!!!!
