If you want sailing and especially cruising magazines then go buy "Cruising World" or "Sail" or any other magazine as they tons of pictures showing women hositing sails or throwing a line or steering a boat. Latts & Atts is what it is because it IS different than all the other magazines out there and maybe it is geared a little towards men. Also no one says you have to buy it or read it.

Also your argument is spot on that sailing IS a bit of a boys club because it IS! Not saying that women arn't welcome or anything like that but the vast majority of boat owners are men. It is a simple fact and therefore it makes perfect sense to gear a magazine slightly towards men. If Bob started putting pictures of scantily clad men on the cover how many women boaters do you think are really out there to sustain all that revenue? It would sink quicker than GM! Also if he just put regular pictures of men and women "sailing" and doing sailing activites then it would be just like every other sailing magazine out there. Also my girl friend loves latts and atts so not all women mind the cover.

nk235, you missed my point. I like Latts and Atts content. I like their more laid back approach. I don't want to see beefcake on the cover either- if I want beefcake I look at my hubby. I don't mind beautiful women being featured on the cover at all, it would just be nice if they were beautiful women who were actually DOING something.

HEHEHE! This thread is hillarious! I was laughing out loud in my office.

Ok, Mimsy and Jacq-,

I was going to post my picture up here -then I realized that you would cease to respect me for who I am and what I know. You would only see me as a body-building sex symbol. I couldn't have that.

Take Pollard and TDW for instance: a face and a body only a mother could love. And Cam!! OH MY GOD! Beat with the ulgy stick. Yet, you still respect them for their opinions.

I hate it when chicks only want me for my body. That is why I keep a low profile and retain my modesty!!

HEHE!

Here's the pic of Cam in his thong. You asked for it. Maybe I should talk to Bob about putting this on the next cover to make the female readers of L&A happy??
