No idea. Once they closed the place off to non-members, I stopped looking over there. I certainly have no intention to be a member on L&A with all the crap that is allowed to be placed.

Wow, I can't believe they would not port over their old discussions and members. That just does not seem right. Even if a lot of it was flaming, I am sure there was a ton of useful info in there too.

Andy, you’re too kind.
The old L&A forum may have included an ounce of useful info, embalmed within tons of shti. The new one has even less.

I'm with Gordon.

I believe Latitudes & Attitudes is glossy palagarism of the highly successful and informative LATITUDE 38 magazine and is, at best, suitable for lining a birdcage. However - I would not wrap fish in the pages of Latitudes & Attitudes magazine. The "editor" is a grease-ball biker who doesn't know how to spell. Their website is worse.

Kirk

PS - check out www.latitude38.com Their 'lectronic latitude service is, in my opinion, tremendous.

Should we be discussing Practical Boat Owner, and Yachting monthly on here as they have theior own forums and info from those forums frequently finds its way into the magazines!

BTW dont forget Sailing Today!

Kirk, there are allot of us "grease-ball bikers" turned sailor out there and I take exception to that. Now if you were to call him a sell out.... Bottom line is, this forum has been and should continue to be above name calling. Don't like Lats and Atts, don't read it, don't watch it, don't log onto the site. Some like it, and some don't. I have known Bob for over 20 years. He is like anyone else. Just trying to make a living. What people choose to do with his product (Specifically the website), is beyond his personal control. Personally, I like the guy, but the free issues of his rag I have received from friends were fairly priced. As for spelling... My hat is off to anyone who never makes a gramatical or spelling error, because I sure as heck can't make that claim.

Hey guys, lay off Lats and Atts, don't like it, don't go. Let's get back to bashing the multi hulls.







Capn K, that was a joke.

Keyboard? I thought it might have been the heat he has been complaining about;-)

It's all better now. I have to admit operator error. That's what happens when you are half blind, type by the hunt and peck method, and try typing in the dark

Hey Kirk,"whats the difference between a grease ball biker and a sailor?"Let me see,Two wheels,Two sails,both have wind in hair,both free to go wherever,If engine is working right,both usually have cool women for company,both drink and party,you could be both uneducated and lead either lifestyle or be educated and shun the other,DAMM,I just found the difference!!One has a magazine that provides lots of money to be able to live the life or lives he chooses.Better buy some candles Kai and keep up with the in-crowd.Mudnut.1957 XLCH sporty,"Only sporty police bike ever !!!"

'57 Sportster eh? Not a bad ride. Not a bad ride at all. I keep threatening to buy my next door neighbor's K model but I have too much sailing to do. Anyway I have a half restored Bonnie in the corner of my shop now and a TR6R that has started second kick for the past 28 years. Well... OK... sometimes it starts first kick.

Listen you have to remember L&A is there for one reason. It is the only porn site where you don't get clobbered with pop-ups!

As far as Sail magazine goes, I would have to say that for those of you who have been doing this for a while, it may be redundant. I on the other hand am entirely new at this and looking to learn as much as I can. So the Practical Sailing (sailor I don't remember which) section provides me with some excellent information. Besides if I want a good fight, all I have to do is try to teach SWMBO something. Instead I can hand her the articles I want her to read, and she learns quickly!

I also started looking at DIY Boat Owner, now owned by BoatUS. (I wonder if they will totally mess it up.) It has had a couple of very good articles on maintenance subjects. The most recent was on building new cushions, and diagnosing the tach on your diesel.

Any other good magazines for those of us starting to learn? I hope to get ready to cut the lines in 5-7 years.
