Default Extreme Boats Magazine

It seems there has been a lot of threads about this magazine lately. I think it was part of our membership package or something. I haven't really put much thought into getting it as I didn't think it was the end of the world if I didn't. I felt like the opportunity to have use of the board was worth the money I paid alone without the freebies.

Anyway, got my issue in the mail yesterday. Took the time this evening to sit down and look through it. A few things stood out to me right away. All pages are thick, heavy, glossy pages with emaculate pics on all of them. First overall impression was it is a high end magazine that would cost a little more to produce. I realize that mags need advertisers to support the cause, but this mag isn't 90% advertising like some you might see. Just didn't feel like I would be paying to see pages upon pages of ads. (although this may change as the publication grows in popularity)

All in all I was impressed with it. Something I would consider subscribing to without question.

There were some things that stood out in the articles to me. On page 74 at the bottom of the page it says that the boat is a 2001 388 Hustler. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a Sunsation?

The article about the Escalade. While the vehicle is very nice and the article was intersting to read, I don't think this is a wise choice for high end towing. Why would someone want a vehicle that is rated for 7700 lbs strapped to a boat with a triple axle trailer under it? Just thought it was a little odd.



Overall I liked it.

Buck

AS I sat on my throne I thought to myself> Self " that looks like a 28.8 Sunsation not a Hustler?"
I agree
I think the mag is top quality nice to see some different faces for a change

I've got to be honest, when I first received the last issue after subscibing months in advance, I thought what a ripp off. I just schrugged it off and thought , at least it was only $29.00. But I have to tell you, Wow, What a Mag !!! I am really impressed from the quality pic's and pages, from the articles and readers rides. I honestly think that this mag will be the #1 performance boat mag soon. A lot better than the last one.It is more personal than the others. When I subscribe to the boat mags, this will be the first I write the check for. Thanks Extreme Boats for the GREAT mag !!!! Dave Warden

It is a different perspective than the other mags that all copy eachother. I agree, it will be the most popular as time goes on.

Thanks for the thoughts. The new format really make us different from the rest of the boating mags out there.

For just the fourth issue, we've come a long way.

And just wait two more issues until you see the photos from my new Nikon digital camera. Wow what a difference it makes.
