Look what i've got

I'm currently reading ( thanks to a pal on Boatmad) the latest issue of Inflatable Boats Magazine. an American publication which imho has to be the biggest waste of $5.99 you can imagine. Serious lack of content has made them resort to the sort or tricks a 12 year old gets up to when doing their homework, double spacing and using really big letters!

Now if that wasn't bad enough, they've also done the unthinkable, and have got Manos as their International correspondent! I hope they have a spell checker, and perhaps a lie detector!

Heres a few sample pages, together with a pic of the great man himself.

So did you like it, or not?

Sheesh! Why do you always have to beat round the bush instead of speaking your mind?

I can't help being polite can I, it was the way I was brought up!

But yeh, you probably detected that i thought it was shite, the only redeaming feature that it has, is that it only takes about five minutes to read.

Picture quality aint all that either, I reckon the international correspondent needs to splash out on a new camera.

Makes Rib Int look like a good read!

At $60.00, it's a bargain, so much so that they dedicated a whole page to subscription forms!

I like to do my bit for the community.

I see she's married to a Hugo, bit of a coincidence don't you think!

Hi
Thanks for the feedback.
I would like to know what it is you dislike in particular and what you would do to make it better. A new set of eyes and ideas are always useful.
Constructive criticism is also always welcome.

Since you don't seem to like our content, maybe consider submitting some of your own, we are always open to it.

I think the first post sums up Dirk's thoughts...and employing a character like Manos doesn't exactly add credibility does it? I take it you have read some of wild posts on here?
