Ran to mailbox again. Still no powerboat. Picked up new superboat and performance boat today and was hoping for trifecta. No luck

Drama!

Story goes - there was two brothers that ran it (including the hot boat website). When Larry flint publications was over owning it one of the brothers was going to buy it, he went in vacation just before putting in his offer and while he was gone, the other brother swooped in and bought it from under him - then fired him! The fired brother turned around and started performance boats and the majority of the members from the hot boat forum left the website for the newly formed performance boats website, hotboat turned into a ghost town (later more website drama followed and most members have left performance boats website for riverdaves...that's another story though). The brother that bought hotboat ran it into the ground (I think it was also coupled with the fact the magazine was already suffering - thus flint publications was selling originally) and it went belly up.

That's it in a nut shell.

If it makes any of you feel any better, I don't have mine either—and my issues get shipped to me directly from the printer.

Of course I know what's in it, but that's a whole lot different from holding and reading the finished product.

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 ?
Hey Bro, I feel the same way but Powerboat is getting better. Have you tried Performance Boats Magazine? They have an offshore and a lake version. Both offer great reading. I do get both versions as well as Powerboat. Just fyi.....
