Re: Latest on L&A

I picked up the first issue of it at Barnes and Noble. I actually enjoyed it more than Lats and atts, as it was full of info a lot less of the not really attractive women in bikini's. Had real info on ports of call, and some boats, something I think was missing for a long time in Latitudes. It had become too much of a "I'm kewler than you" fest, with not much more than photos of a bunch of drunk sailors in the harbor. though I did see that stupid word a few times, and a couple of the articles were not well written, but had good info in them none the less. Like the one about Belize, as I could almost not get through it with all the "unbelizeable" puns, once is a bit gratuitous, but acceptable but come on he keep up with it through the whole article.

This sort of reader supplied material is ok to be not quite as polished, so I can deal with it. That is what made Living Aboard and makes Good old Boat such useful references. I was very happy to see much less of the cheesy cheesecake, and more meaty articles, if they keep it up I may subscribe.

I'm with you on that. It was a mag that I wanted to like, but just couldn't. Either I was getting too old, or it was getting too young.

The solution is not to remove the cheesecake, its to improve. I ain't that old.

I like magazines I don't mind my daughters seeing on my desk. Others I keep out of sight! :-) Funny thing is the raciest magazine I have looked at in over 20 years is Maxim. You can get the rest for free on the interwebs!

But perhaps it is the getting old, not dead yet, but getting older.

Re: Latest on L&A

If you wanna try it out, they set it up so you can just buy a single issue digitally. If you do the online version, it's cheaper than buying in the store.

Re: Latest on L&A

Bought the magazine to check it out and, whilst better, I'm probably going to let it slide if the next one isn't better. It's got less of what I disliked from L&A (which I won't repeat - others have mentioned it above) and it has the framework for a great magazine... but there still isn't enough "meat" on the bone.

I won't detail all the bad points, I think they're aware of what they are and they don't need me to harp on them. Just that it's not my cup of tea (though I kind of wish it was).

Me too! Still working my way through the last issue, it is looking pretty ragged.
