I didn't say there were NO powerboats, it just seem's a little out of place to see crusers in powerboat.

The very first PB mag that I ever saw was one that I bought last month. It had a lot of cool boats in it but I wasnt verry impressed.

I have nothing against cruisers, fishing boats, runabouts, skiboats, pontoons, of river rats......but I would like to see a magazine that focusses strictly on "OFFSHORE PERFORMANCE" style boats.

I don't think it would have enough circulation to justify the expense of the operation, there's just not enough of us out there.

If it doesn't have a big pole or two sticking straight up out of the deck with some form of fabric on it and it uses a a petroleum product for fuel isn't it a powerboat???

I'm with you there Bro! I got my copy last night and can't wait to get home tonight and finish reading it!!!!! Mercury 5-Blade prop, a 61 mph 32 ft. Cruiser HMMMMMMMMMMM....., Ike can get some info on his latest venture, wave running, and lets not forget Shanghied Again, Frank Civitano won a T-shirt for his "Best poker Run" article. A great issue if you ask me!

I have been subscribing to PB since the 70's and they are still here! Used to be all racing coverage, but they have grown....and more importantly survived! We have seen many publications come and go over the years. I really wonder where they would be at if the founder Bob Nordskog (RIP) was still alive?

Not to be picky or nit picky, but just because the name of the magazine is Powerboat, does that mean it can only test performance boats??? The one thing I did find odd, is the POPRA ad APBA schedule and the What's Happening...APBA announces the schedule, they are different...Any news on which one is correct...The dates for Daytona dont match and some of the sites are different...Thanks...
