This, and similar comments from others here, mirror my views exactly. I thought I was the only one but I guess not. It was always one of those things where it wasn't exactly my style, but I was always glad it was there. I always thought it was nice that they brought a bit of attitude to cruising, Captain Ron style. I feel similar about sailing anarchy, at the other end of the spectrum.
I could never bring myself to actually subscribe. I did the online subscription for a year once, but didn't really read much of the mag. Still, when I see a copy laying around, I always enjoy going through it.
Too bad how things seem to have gone down. It will make an interesting read once things come out (probably in a court room). I wish nothing but the best for Bob and Jodie.
