I don't want to sugar coat this too much, but you suck.
Even if my boat were in the water, I'd still get a concusion trying to dive on it.

Good Old Boat is a fabulous magazine but damn I wish they did an online edition. I neither need nor want the paper version, my bathroom already has enough reading material to last a lifetime as it is. They also have a rather neat CD version of some of their back issues but again, it would be so much more convenient to be able to download.

If the poptarts at Latts and Atts can do it, surely anyone can.

Fluffy,
This may come as a shock to you, but all that paper in your bathroom isn't "reading material". It's been placed there by Mrs Wombat for other purposes. You can fit an issue or two of GOB in there, use the existing paper for it's intended purpose, and simultaneously cut down on the number of shampooings your fluffy little tail requires. Be advised the rolled "reading material" does not come with directions you might wish to consult a zoologist on the matter. Didn't you notice you were reading the same story over and over again? Sort of like one of my finer posts on socialized medicine? (g)

Fluffy - when I spoke with the GOB folks at Annapolis, an online edition was one of the things we talked about, and it is something they are considering.

funny how different things are gleaned from the same article...
i was reminded of every letter to the editor of sail/sailing/cruisig world etc., or ranting here about "this guy on the cover wasn't wearing a PFD..that's so irresponsible and promotes unsafe sailing practices..what's wrong w/ you guys anyway?"
read enough letters to the editors, or enough posts and i think you get my drift..

Well I did discard the white stuff but I just thought the printing was a bit small for my tired old eyes. On the other hand Latts and Atts had a most unwelcome effect on the haemorroids. I also found that any Rupert Murdoch publication is most efficacious in matters of constipation.

PB - Thanks for that. I hope they do it, I'd definitely subscribe.
