Default Farewell OSO—At Least For Now

With its home page reverting to a message board format in a COVID-19 pandemic cost-cutting move, offshoreonly.com columnists are on hiatus, https://www.offshoreonly.com/article...-least-for-now.

Seemed pretty abrupt to me as well, especially when more people are going to be reading things online than ever before. Hopefully the world can get its head right in the coming weeks.

Mat, Jason - stay safe and we will definitely be following you on SOTW.... your writing has been a welcome distraction in the last couple of weeks.

WTF that's terrible IMO. I always read and looked forward to reading your articles. At a time like this we all need your up lifting interviews and keeping us posted on boating. I feel they are trimming the fat in the wrong area.

"OK, so the offshoreonly.com team jumped the gun a bit and pulled the home page last Friday, which not only kind of freaked us out but—in truth—pissed us off."

Sounds like the perfect time for OSO Steve to buy the site back.
