Just gonna throw this out there and maybe this was asked the last time this happened but there are a lot of wealthy people on this forum(I am not one of them ). There is nobody on here that is interested in funding this magazine? With regards to the whole by one subscription, get one free is BS. Those of us that buy the magazine I am sure have no problem paying for two subscriptions at full price, hell we could buy 20 subscriptions with what we spend in gas for one weekend! Such a shame that someone can't just buy this magazine and fix this problem once and for all!

Who needs magazines when I have "you people" to disagree with in realtime?! The only boating magazines I get are in Poker Run goodie bags.

If I had the coin to finance a magazine, I would buy this website.

From Matt's article in speedonthewater.
quote"“The current subscribers to Powerboat magazine will be transferred to our Boating publication.” from the VP.

What if i orderd a truck, and they deliver a car? do I have to take the car?
I already get boating magazine. It should not be their choice, it should be mine, if i want some other publication

Strange way to do business
