So do I. My subscription is up in 3 months.

You may get some business by giving someone a t- shirt for free in the channel, but probably not enough to make a difference. Loyalty is the key. You know what I mean, people who pay more than ever for a magazine, but get less than ever for their buck. I am definitely not a complainer, but if you're going to give out free stuff, how about the people who get nothing even close to what they paid for when they subscribed to your Magazine.
All you have to do is jump up and down, wave your hands in the air.. next time.. and get noticed...This way Thistank will know who you are..the subsciber for years that hasn't recieved what he thought was due...Man, Ive been subscribing to magazines since late 70's, and had a garage/library filled with them, till Katrina hit, now I have that 1/4 filled since 05..I recieved a t-shirt twice.. I consider myself a lucky person.

I'm sorry, let me re-phrase it so it's more comprehendable in an "on-line arena" (aka exageration)....It was like 6' with waves and we were running 200 mph. :

But yea, 4' big holes in between, white caps running 120-130...It was bumpy and we were airing it out pretty nicely.

So where is the guy with the 28' Pantera crushing waves with a single big block while the others are sipping drinks on the dock because of conditions...come on....waves and offshore boats?? never thought I would hear that it was too wavey... no one said you had to run all out...slow down and enjoy the waves

You did catch the sarcasm right?

Too "wavey"? Hardly..... The ride was magnificant and that boat ate that sh!t up....
