What happened to Pacific Rib Magazine?

Just did a Google search of Rib magazines and stumbled across what appears to be a now defunct Pacific Rib Magazine.
Looked like a pretty good mag.
Was anyone here affiliated with this publication?
I wonder if there wasn't enough of a demand to keep them in business?
Are there any magazines just dedicated to ribs?
I know at one time there was a Powerboat & Rib Magazine too.
I'm not sure if they are still in business, and how much space was dedicated to ribs.

I know that we are probably a very small market, but kind of surprised there isn't some sort of periodical about Ribs.

I think Pacific RIB still exists and is published once per year....although I have never bought it.

The $15NZ (about 7.50GBP) digital subscription to all of the magazines seems good value. Their magazines have an NZ market focus...I used to buy one of them that covered alloy boats, ribs etc before they reorganised to the current titles.
