I saw L&A at the bookstore last weekend, and it had a photo of a woman tying off a haylard to a cleat on the mast.... Maybe they listened to the criticism in this thread?

Because it's published by a man, targeting the sailing world that is predominantly men.

You gotta remember where Bob Bitchin has come from. He published an outlaw biker magazine and tattoo magazine. Is this so far fetched for him to have women gracing his magazine. I say we are lucky (or unlucky depending on your side of this issue) that these women even have clothes on.

For me, when I picked up my first issue of Latts & Atts I thought, FINALLY! a sailing magazine that's not about racing or multi-million dollar yachts with a bunch of preppie snobs at the helm.

I also enjoy reading Cruising World. OMG! The May issue has 3 beautiful women just standing around on the bowsprit.

Bob, where do I renew my subscription?

How about Bob Bitchin leaning gently on a pulpit?

I have pictures of my wife sailing in a bikini that most men would like would upset some woman I'm sure, but like alot of other woman I see dressed the same way where we sail is just part of the real world. I like Latt & Att because its more like my sailing style. Yes I sail bare foot. I like the articles and most of the pictures look like there taken for the reason I take them, to show how great it is. If you can't get past the cover, there are lots of other mags.

Funny to see Bob's still hangin' out. I used to read his articles in Biker, one of the custom motorcycle mags, in the early 80's. His path parallels my own. Walked away from the Harleys when grungy bike shops turned into Boutiques. I'm glad to be here working on boats and leaving the road behind. I think I get his mindset. I still like his attitude, lol.

Funny thread!

A few months ago I was thumbing through a pile of old photos on my wife's desk. I came to one of a boy about 8 years old and a guy about 25 standing with one foot on the deck and one on the coach roof coiling a line in his hands. I didn't recognize him. I thought maybe he was a friend of my wife. He had dark brown hair, a great tan and nicely muscled. Out of curiosity I asked my wife who it was. She just looked at me like I was insane! So I looked closer at the picture. It was then that I recognized the young boy. It was my best friends son. I looked closer at the boat, hey that's MY boat! I looked at the guy again, but it wasn't my best friend. Then it dawned on me, Holy ****! that's ME 30 years ago!

Sad when you've lost it, and don't even recognize that you ever had it.
