You can always download the latest issue for free: http://www.latitude38.com/index.lasso

I find "Latitudes and Attitudes" to meet your original criteria. It takes a good several hours to read one cover to cover (as opposed to 30 minutes for most sailing magazines.)

Perfect scenario is to pick up a pile from a second hand book store. This really takes most of the meaning out of the adds and cuts out what is currently in trend. Then a decade or so later you might almost be able to afford some of the featured/marketed boats and products?

I will have to check out "Good Old Boat"

Thanks for the link - I have always eyed this one at the newsagents, but was a bit worried it was just geared to a small group of cruiser who network with each other. Then again you could say the same about this site?

Still, it is definitely the least commercial mag in the sailing section. If anything it is a bit like our Coastal Passage, which can also be downloaded for free The Coastal Passage Home Page I kind of also find this one a bit “clicky”, but maybe it is just because I am a “newbie” and the mag’s patronage is mostly from Queensland?
