I like looking at the mag, I think maybe I've purchased one issue.
L&A is a refreshing difference from mags like Good Old Boat. I
can only read so many stories about some guy who paid $10 dollars
for a 50' sailboat, brought it home, and in two weekends turned it
into a magnificent sailing yacht. Or the GOB stories about some
guy who has created a new this and that, made a this and that, etc.
I always get the "when do these folks go sailing" thoughts after reading
an issue. On the other hand, L&A presents fun side of sailing. Lots of
happy faces on happy boats sailing in the Florida/Bahama's sunshine.
I don't pay much attention to Bob, the publisher, or hardly any of the
other articles, I just thumb through. I like to look at the doo dadds
for sale. The photos. Etc. Sorry to hear about Bob's wife. Life
getting in the way of sailing.. seems to be a theme lately.

Maybe let me know wehre your hanging out at now.

I don't get on the board here as often as I used to but I like a lot of the information and most of the people are nice.

I may still have your number and email in my private messages and will go through them to see.

I've subscribed to L & A since it started. Lately, I check out the boat reviews, read Woody's latest article on some delivery (kill me, I enjoy it) and a few pages later I hit the half magazine full of ads (including all the Seafarer stuff). I find my favorite mag these days is This Old Boat. Guess me and my boat are both getting old & crusty.

L&A and Good Old Boat Mags

First off, lets all hope Jody makes a full recovery.

When I subscribed to L&A I thought it was funny that Bob made several comments about the cost and complexity of owning a million dollar yacht(he was referring to the Lost Soul). The next month he writes about building the Shannon at $1.2m. Granted, he bartered advertising space for equipment, he is a smart guy. I don't subscribe anymore, but I am dying to find out what current subscribers bought for BB and Jody.

Good Old Boat is an excellent magazine if you interested the mechanical side of sailing. I have been friends with the publishers since the late 1980's. I shared a marina with them when the idea of Good Old Boat was first discussed in the mid 1990's. If you want to learn about your boat, and you are a do it your self kind of person, it is a great read.

I stopped subscribing because they no longer spend much time talking about bigger cruising boats. They seem to focus on small boats, many of them trailerable. They are catering to their market, but I don't want to read articles about rehabbing a 22 footer with a pop top. They should change the name of the mag to Good Old Small Boat.

I love to cruise, but at the end of the day, I want to be comfortable on my boat. I sailed on my buddies 25 footer and I felt like I barely took a step up from camping. Karen and Jerry love that style of boat, but it wasn't for me. You can take a lot away from what they write about and apply it to bigger boats, but you can only read about those tiny boats for so long.

The great thing about sailing is that there is a boat, a magazine, and a destination for all of us. You just have to find the right combination.

Tim

Hey timo - I'm just still trying to figure out how this joint venture thing is supposed to work. Are L&A posters on SN now?

BTW - I take GOB too...it was a gift. I won't renew. Plenty of info online to pay for mags.

Timeshare with Attitude

The Shannon website said that BB's new boat is going to be called Attitude. Seems fitting.

I am guessing that a share of the Shannon would work like any timeshare. A few weeks a year where ever the boat happens to be moored. I am guessing you will also need to qualify as a sailor to buy in.

Partnerships can be tricky. What if one guy wants to add a second dinghy and you don't. Who has the voting rights? Who pays for what damage? I would rather just charter and not have to have all those concerns.

well the came in with a newsstand copy of the Feb issue does this mean I have $7 share into the Shannon?

I would have a hard time knowing my wife was in BB bed.

I'm going to be happy to move up to half that size and where would I live the other 3/4 of the time.

I believe I saw an add in the current L&A for the uncompleted Shannon. Will try to check(I have an old mans memory, may forget to) and report back.
