I'd welcome a new one to the stands. Dropped PB yrs ago after growing sick of the gold chain crowd. Always cracked me up too when they'd test a boat w/a decent cabin and never show a single picture of bellow deck Kinda proved their intent to me.
Interesting too to compare the classified sections of the current PB w/the PB of old. Way different.
I liked and subscribed to Family and Performance Boat for part of it's short life. It was unique in covering a more diverse group of boats.
w/todays market though I can't imagine anyone thinking publishing a boat magazine as a good investment.
BTW, I spent some time Googling "Super Sport Magazine" last night and came up w/nothing.

The economy is tough on business these days, but Powerboat mag has been pretty weak lately. A new mag would be cool.

I just dropped PowerBoat too. Got sick of paying for a half dozen or less skinny magazines. I will subscribe again if they go back to a monthly magazine. It's a shame if they go under but what do they expect?

I just got my renew notice in the mail for Powerboat. The magazine has gone to a bi-montly sales flier. I will not be renewing and I am sure a lot of others will not also. I can go to Barnes and Noble and read it in the isle in less than 10 minutes. It was a great mag. What a shame. Jeff Wurl

I have subscribed to Powerboat for 20 years and think I have all of those issues. Personally, I look forward to receiving it and think they have done a good job considering the current economic climate.
