Yeah, not TOOOOO bad a mag, or reviews.........wait a minute........
I think someone is greasing the stick here!
Frankly, I am surprised no one else has mentioned this one. I do like it. Do not always liek the review boat choices.....but that is another story and issue. I can say the same for ANY rag that reviews boats, as not all of them are what I personally want etc.
Reality is, buy some off the shelf, try those you can not via subscription, you will figure out which you like best for the info you want. All frankly have good and bad. Also look at the local freebies if available, like for me, 48north and Yachting have good info for stuff here in the NW. I've read Lat38, has good info, but most is related to S Cal, similar format but more pages than 48north.
GOB is ok, altho I should probably say more positive, as my boat was a review boat. I've helped arrainge 4-5 other boats since thru my local club/marina. I do like the newer articles BP is doing on designs and info about it. Its ok, but the reviews to a degree are a bit same o same o.
Pacific yachting is another local NW US/SW BC aimed rag that is good too.
I get Sailing, sail, sailing world by subscription. I'll pickup a woodenboat upon occasion, still remember when that first came out.........
