Greetings,
Mr. Wxx. "or maybe it always was." I don't think so. Somewhere, we have all the issues from the first two or three years and there were articles about every day guys, gals and boats in all of them. Your exploits would most probably been highlighted in a feature article.

We lost interest when Bill Pantaloon sold out to that big magazine conglomerate, the name of which escapes me now. (nothing new there...).
PMM basically became a glossy sales brochure full of the latest and greatest what-evers...boats to multi-buck fuel management systems. You actually had to pay for the skewed (IMO) articles and the pseudo "expert" must-have recommendations. Yup, Motor Trend...

The original chat room was quite active and I made and met several new friends as a result of MY involvement. I also suspect that forum was the seed that produce TF.
