Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

We just subscribed to Good Old Boat, it has some interesting articles and is aimed at "normal" budgets, we also like Practical Sailor a lot. We get Sailing due to our ASA membership but we're not in the market for a 5M racing machine. We just sold our 1993 Macgregor (LOVED THAT BOAT!) and bought a 2000 Catalina 320 which we are learning and constantly being amazed with but walking the piers I notice that even at 12 years old (really 13) the vast majority of boats are older than ours. So maybe a magazine like "Good But Not So Old Boat" might work. I guess there are so many different styles, ages and owner income levels that there would be no one size fits all. BUT although we did enjoy L&A's and really liked the readers pictures section (I guess BB play off In The Wind in Easyrider Magazine) did I'd wince and cringe everytime I read "kewel".
