I'm Guilty! During my 35 years delivering the US Mail I have paged through a few performance boat magazines.

In any case, we truly appreciate all of our readers' support, and thank you Tank for the kind words. We do work really hard to produce a top-notch, well-edited and well-rounded magazine each and every time (even if they're smaller than they used to be).

And by the way, Tank lives in the same city where the Powerboat offices are located so he usually gets hot-off-the-press office copies.

That's what I thought. Subscribers should get it first, if not it doesn't really make sense to subscribe. Thanks for clearing that up. I admire the fact that you have been able to hang in there while most of your competition couldn't

What is the new Mag out ? Sub to PB for years and stopped it a few years ago , just atarted up again and NOT EVEN CLOSE to what it was 10 years ago !!! Since the new owners took over a few years ago it is only good for toilet paper !!! To be honest I miss HOT boat! Why ? They showed real boats, not million dollar rigs that only a few could ever own . P.B is just a big adv book for big dollar companys pushing there overpriced hardware . Am I the only one who feel this way ?

J,

Competition is good. You couldn't be more correct. However, what determines the size of Powerboat—and all special interest consumer magazines—is the number of advertising pages.

More ad pages, more editorial pages. Simple. I've written for more than a dozen other publications, and that's just the way it works.

I never could figure out why Hot Boat went down the drain?
