Personally I think it is obvious what happened. Bob was lucky and got out, and sold to an investor who did not know what they were getting into and once he saw the writing on the wall, bailed. There is a future in print, and I think Good Old Boat is a model that can work. Low costs, so low subscription numbers can be supported. Big glossy magazines are not really going to work unless you are catering to big dollar advertisers like Sail Magazine.

As Zee says there is not a lot of money to be squeezed from what remains of the cruising world.
