Sorry, but that's a really silly question. How much money do you suppose men spend on boats as compared with women? How many men read sailing mags compared to women? Who do you suppose most people would rather look at? a hot female or a hot male? I would wager that even most women find the female form more attractive to look at than the male.

I personally know of quite a few women who spend tons of their own money on boats. In addition, how many of these men you speak of spend money but are HEAVILY influenced by women- girlfriends, wives, etc?

Personally, I have no desire to see a hunky man on the lats and atts magazine or any other sailing/cruising magazine. I expect a cruising magazine to be about- well, cruising. I almost didn't pick up the latest issue because the cover turned me off. I did wonder who the cover girls doctor was, cause he does nice work.

Damn, I missed that one. :D

Hey, don't get me wrong. I don't deny that there are lots of women into sailing or that many men that are into sailing are answering to their women. Still, just going by the numbers that I see, men are the target audience. Sorry.
Congratulations on the boat btw.
