There are some real POS out there that they have tested and they still wont call a spade a spade.

I've subscribed more years than I want to remember.....they were printed in black and white with a little color thrown in for splash. If mine didn't arrive by a certain day each month, I was crabby and difficult to live with until it arrived. I no longer subscribe or even bother to read them when available. Too many vehicles and the featured boats, while impressive, are way too expensive for the average person. I can't relate to them anymore. PB, are you listening?

Get PB but tired of the same stuff in it.

I will stick with EXTREME BOATS ....they seem to be more diversified and more realistic in the product reviews with owners instead of advertisers.

I think we've found something we can all agree on (well, most of us anyway)... PB magazine does articles on what can best be described by most of us as "extreme" boats that none of us will ever be able to afford. I know some on here can, but of the 20,000+ members, I'd venture a guess and say 98% of us will never own the boats they do articles and tests on.

So, who want's to start a ragazine that deals only with boats that can be had on a trailer with warranteed power for under $100,000?? Some of us (not me!) can see one of these in our future at some point... but come on..... a $600,000 Cigarette or $1 million Skater? Nice pics, but how about something for the rest of us?? I liked it back when Hot Boat would do an entire issue on "mini offshore boats" or something like that. You know the type, 28 Nordic, 28 Pantera, 25 Baja, 25 Checkmate, 26 Powerquest, 28 Sunsation, 26 Sonic, 26 Laveycraft, etc, etc, etc...... All these boats can be had with good power, on a trailer, for less than $90K. Bust out the 401K loans!!!

I guess the same can be said for car magazines, so you're saying dump the Ferrari or Lambo reviews?? What's the fun if you can't read about the cream of the crop? I'll never afford a new Cig or OL, but I just love it when they review those boats. Face it, it doesn't get any better than those boats (insert Nor-Tech, Skater, etc.) in the offshore community. The Baja 25 or Checkmate reviews just don't do it for me, hell, I can just go down to the Sound and get a ride in boats like that and perform my own review. I don't think I'll ever have the chance to do that in a new OL. It's the boat companies like Cig, Skater, OL that push the innovation envelope and make it better for the industry as a whole and rags like PB help educate me.

If I'm not mistaken though, they've reviewed the 28 Nordic several times in the past couple of years, same with the Pantera and Baja. How many reviews on the same model can they do??

I like the rag, I'll continue to subscribe to it as well as the other boating pubs I get.
