L&A Has Been Sold

Bobs big announcement at the St Pete boat show was a doozie: Bob sold L&A, Living Aboard, L&A TV, the whole nine yards to a group of four buyers who said that were going to improve the magazine and fix what needed to be fixed. Bob is still going to have a hand in things in some fashion.

I heard Jodie saying the next morning that the shock of selling it was just starting to hit Bob.

By appearances the new owners seem to be yachtie types but I did not have any interaction with them and I am willing to see where they take this. I this my favorite mag I have either bought or subscribed to every issue since #10, Joined LACC last year, I own several of Bobs books and every L&A TV DVD, and bought a bunch from the store to help support the mag.

I wish them the best but Bob and Jody are the heart and soul of L&A. As Bob says "Attitude is the difference between Ordeal and Adventure" so lets see what the new owners can bring to the table.
