Default Family & Performance Boating - worth a subscription?

Was thinking of signing up for a year of this mag - what's your guy's take on it?

thanks,

Mark

I'd buy a few issues off the newstand/magazine store. If you can. It will give you an idea of the magazines content. I personally had some problems with receiving my subscription so I did not renew.

I think it's a great mag,unfortunately I can't get it.They still have major subscription problems,I finally gave up trying. Too bad,because the publisher addressed the problem on the board several times but I never received many issues.

I subscribed because there are so few other performance boat mags out there. But delivery has been very spotty.

I personally love reading the mag just as much as Powerboat and Hotboat. I think it is worth it, it has helped me out many times with different things that i wouldnt have known unless i had that magazine.

As for the delivery, i guess i have been one of the really lucky ones bc i have gotten every issue so far(fingers crossed). You would think they have that under control since they publish like 5 different magazines.

I used to get it at the newstand and really liked it. Got a subscription months ago (paid for it) and haven't received a copy yet. Emailed them and they said it was going to start, that was last month. Too bad, I think its a pretty good magazine.
