Default Check out the latest issue of Powerboat Magazine - You wont be disappointed!

If you get a chance, pick up the latest issue of powerboat magazine. I’ll even go out on a limb and suggest that those of you that have been less than pleased with PBM as of late may be swayed away from your lack luster reviews after perusing the pages. I must say, I’m pretty objective (even with the fact I write a Blog for them). I do realized the last few issues have suffered at the hands of the poor economy, just as the whole industry has. However, I’m extremely pleased with this issue and I believe you all will be too.

A few key features include cover boat; John Woodruff’s magnificent 48 MTI “Windship” - powered by the new Merc 1350 turbos and M8 drives (also see my Blog http://www.powerboatmagazine.com/tank-sears-blog/ for further on this amazing machine), “5 minutes” with Nor-Techs Terry Sobo, review of Kevin Schultes massive Peterbuilt tow rig which he tows his Zul powered T/S Top Gun, David Wood’s (Pier 57) new extreme poker run support truck (Beautiful cover photo courtesy of Cigarette’s Chad Braver), review of 13 must-attend poker runs for 2011, articles regarding Reggie Fountains departure for Fountain Powerboats and the rebirth of AMF Offshore Rigging, and huge coverage of the battle in Key West (2011 world champions) as well as being chalked full of awesome photographs and much more!

If you’re looking for a little something to pass the winter blues, check out the new issue of PBM. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed - and yes, I know that’s a bold statement for some of you but I just think if you love this sport/passion/lifestyle, you’ll love this issue.

I'm confused how it seems to hit the stands before people who have subscriptions get them...

Hey...

I just looked at the cover of my issue and it is the February 2011 one.

On the cover is the Skater 30 they put the Ilmor Indy Drives in.

Sorry for the confusion, as I just grabbed it today (and haven't even had a chance to look thru it until now) when I was getting some stuff at West Marine.

I thought it was the latest issue!

I can't wait. It used to be awesome when I received them every month. That was a long time ago. I understand that times are tough, but I never have any idea when I'm going to receive my copy. As a subscriber, I used to receive mine before it hit the newsstands, that's either no longer the deal, or the edition you're talking about I received so long ago that I don't even remember it. I have no knowledge of what months they print an issue. Sometimes I get one, sometimes I don't. It is always a nice surprise though when I do get one, since it's been so long in which I have received one. Either way, I just keep paying. I'm trying to do my part to help support the economy.
