Thx SD, been lurking a little while. We have been closing on this boat for more than a month now, feels like forever. I'll start posting something of greater interest once we actually own it for sure... sigh

Did Lats&Atts become like so many mags before it, too successful and then more&more glossy and high-endy? And what's with the sort-of name change?

My husband says he wanted to buy a recent issue for plane reading but didn't want to be seen on base with something that had that kind of cover photo Guess some things haven't changed!

Update: July 28, we closed JULY 28!!! Whew that took a while. So maybe in the same manana spirit, Lats & Atts will show up here and do something fun ... some day :-)

Seafaring was added to the name due to magazine stands and book stores were placing it in the travel sections instead of boating.
It's been part of their history to have a pic of a woman on a boat on the cover. I think there has only been a few with out.
I'm currently reading one of Bob Bitchins books, Letters from the Lost Soul. He has a funny way telling stories. Some of the stories aren't that good but he tells them well.

Bob started out in the publishing industry with biker mags. Most of those mags have women posing on top of bikes for their covers as well. You wouldn't expect a biker turned cruiser to put out something like Cruising World, right?

Hi, mostly lurker here.

Since L&A is a west coast mag, how 'bout if this thread is used for discussing uniquely west coast resources, problems, destinations and races?

Just a thought.

Dude, I went over there and said hello. The place is a freakin' graveyard.

I love the L&A attitude, personally. But jeez, if that's party cruising, I'm moving into a convent.

SD Dude,
I thought you were in a convent already? Or was that contempt or incontinent?
All seriousness aside this reminds me of a funny scene from one of the Airplane movies where there is a shot of a Nun on the airplane in uniform reading a copy of 'Boys Life' (glossy photo cover) and right next to her is reading a copy of the magazine 'Nun's Life' (also with a glossy photo cover).

The L&A website occasionally has some interesting articles but I have not checked out if they have a forum or not. Maybe they did not like Smack or maybe it is more like a graveyard as the Smackster alludes. I could also be confusing them with 'Lattitude 38' (?) from SF Bay area.

This thread sure needs a lot of Tabasco sauce to bring it up to worth reading.
