Uh..Ronnie didn't do it when he was in office, nor did he try, so I fail to see the connection.
Now, if we get Barry, I can forget about even getting a boat.

Who's Ronnie and Barry, Mon? I've already commented on the usefulness of the magazines. I agree entirely with all of you who are trying top save a buck and still continue on with all of the fun stuff life has to offer. Fortunately, our current Depression will also pass one day. Good-luck to all and remember that there is always the library.

Cheers!

Not to mention the chain book stores with their coffee shops where you can sit and read.

Given the discussion in this thread I really think Practical Boat Owner the best, if only they made a US version. My previous boat was a British make (Westerly) so much of PBO was directly relevant. Now, if someone would just copy their format and make a US version... that, I would subscribe to.

I agree that for new boaters the magazines would be helpful. But I'd advise examining them each month at the news stand and buying individual issues as seem appropriate rather than subscribing to any one of them (unless steep discounts are available). For the cost of a coffee you can flip through the stack each month and choose.

The public lending library is one of the great signs of civilization.

I’ve never subscribed to either; but wonder if “DIY Boat Owner” magazine would compare (favourably) to "Practical Boat Owner” magazine?
