Yup...A lifestyle I gave up in my 20s. They seemed to want to paint voyaging as something it's not. Before L & A, it was "Easy Rider" magazine with "Miraculous Mother". They did know how to drum up business from new comers though.

Re: Latts and Atts: Something happened

I have been an avid subscriber of LATS and ATTS almost since the beginning of the magazine. I loved the fun, real world format and lack of stuffiness you find in the other mags. Bob was inspiring with his atttude. But I admit I noticed it changed over the years and immediately after the sell I was ready drop it becasue it loked like every other boat magazine. Too bad. All good things come to an end.

Re: Latts and Atts: Something happened

It must be hard for Bob to see such a large part of his life's work disappear like that.

earnouts, non-competes? Somebody sounds like an M&A lawyer.

I am also sorry to see it go. I also am not into the drinking, partying stuff anymore but I enjoyed the articles from real people. I also heard Bob give a talk in Oakland & enjoyed it. I hope all is well for them and the others who work at L & A.

Re: Latts and Atts: Something happened

Ditto Sailor g. Enjoyed the mag; fun (hold the starch), completely unpretentious and sometimes silly. Published my first ever article (Thanks!!). Met Bob,Jodi, Woody etc. and thought they were a great bunch.
Sail on J&B !! Hope to see you out there and around the docks.

Re: Latts and Atts: Something happened

A shame. I haven't subscribed for a while, but I always enjoyed the magazine. Frequented the forums on occasion as well. Bob and Jody are just honest cruiser folk trying to make a living. Playing to their audience? Sure, but they had a niche because they provided what people wanted. I enjoyed talking to them at the shows - they make time for anyone who wanted to chat about boats and cruising.

FWIW, the guy's name *is* Eric Stone. He's sort of the L&A house band. Look him up. I've seen him play and like the music. Much like Buffett's style, but he is an original.
