Re: Cruising Outpost out
We attended the opening of the St.Pete Boat Show and Bob and Jody are back with print versions of the new magazine. While I was never much of a fan of the old magazine, I have long admired his work ethic and his ability to pull diverse elements together into a business model that has reasonably wide appeal. I was glad to see that the fiasco that led to the demise of L&A did not deter him from trying again although it is a shame to have seen so much effort go down the tubes and his having to start over again so late in life. Never-the-less, we wish him well.
PS: The other vendors at the Show--many former and now future advertisers--are being very supportive of his efforts, including Spectra (Water Makers) that donated a 1500 system to him for his raffle. That was good to see.
