Nice ViewFinder photo! :D
 
I don't get it, but went to the www.PassageMaker.com website (assuming they are related and found two interesting articles right off the bat:

First was a charter company setting up operations on the Rideau (interesting to those boatless like me),

Second, the Mexican alternative to the Panama Canal.

Oh yeah, a sunken fisher being reborn in Australia... Good stuff
 
Looks like Menzies took the photo featured in the mag this month, hey great capture of a beautiful eagle, nice job!
 
Got mine.
I’m sad that the magazine is not what it used to be.
The content is getting skinnier and skinnier. I have a bunch of old back issues (10 years old) and the difference is huge.
I read this months magazine in like 15 mins and then tossed it.
 
Care to show the photo here?

I have all of mine on my home office bookcase and I was remarking on the same when this one came. I think a big part of it was when Steve D'Antonio retired from article writing and focused on his own surveying and marine services business. A big loss.
I just pulled my June 2004 copy and it was 240 pages - this months - 120 pages. And the Ads make up a larger percentage. I will continue subscribing though as it is the best mag out there for my type of boating. And I keep them!

Don't find it interesting. Also, don't want to think my boat is not big/grand enough for me to be happy.

I find that an interesting comment - as they focus mainly on small trawlers and the recreational trawler lifestyle - not the big boys.
 
Yes, I agree when Steve D was a big contributor to the magazine, it was WAY better!
There just not much “content” anymore.
I hope they’re listening.....readership is bound to go down otherwise.
