Magazines are a reader's medium. In other words, if you enjoy reading in and of itself, you probably like magazines. The internet is a "looking" medium, meaning you come to it primarily to find information through text and photos. That's why the stories on speedonthewater.com are typically short and to the point.

That's also why a thread with lots of great photos will capture far more viewers than one with an important story.

I certainly don't know everything about the online world, but I have been working online since 2000 for Boats.com. The numbers back the points I just made.

Multiple magazines covering a single marketplace are a sign of a healthy marketplace. And competition breeds a better product. For both of those reasons, I want Sportboat's competitors to thrive.
I agree with Matt. I buy both Sportboat and Performance Boats Magazines. I also do like Performance Boat online, Speed on the water, as well as OSO obviously. I will never stop buying the print versions. I hope they can both get back to monthly magazines and over 100 pages.

The spring issue is on newsstands now. I think it's substantially better than the winter issue but then ... of course I do, just as I believe the summer issue will be better than spring and on and on. That's my job.

Pstort, when the time is right, and it won't be all that long, I think we can put together digital issues. The development of tablets, in a sense, has given magazines a new life and I agree with you that Sportboat, again at the right time, needs to get on board with digital issues.

The sooner the better.

Thank you very much. Writers Eric Colby and Bob Brown and photographers Robert Brown and Tim Sharkey did a great job.

It's a ways off, but we hope you like the summer issue even more.
