Hms has signed off? No longer editor? Why if your part of the magazine come on and say this when I was sent a lovely email basically diss agreeing with only what I put as my reasons for non renewal
Looks to me I'm not the only one who shares the same views and regardless what's printed we all know what direction it's marketed for

Yes HMS is still the editor, what I meant was that he had agreed to the concept of the articles.....
and yes I contribute to the magazine - about things that interest me and things I think others may be interested in.
I dont know what you mean when you say "regardless of what's printed"?
Surely your judging the magazine on what's printed?
I would guess that making an exclusively RIB orientated magazine isn't economically viable in terms of circulation.

That's not what my original post or email steered towards mate, what I put over was that it's geared to the more wealthy , when was there a budget rib bought 2nd hand ant spruced up etc , again to my view I feel that as a man who is in terms of affordability able to stretch to a mere 3/5kmax and look to refurb over time then most articles etc excluded me , my view my opinion , pm your email and I'll happily fwd u the cocky reply I received , all that was required was a " yes that's great maybe we can look at that angle", and your comment of only ribs, well I've owned motor cruisers/ harbour boats and done them up to great quality on a shoestring!!! So in reply to that u are off the mark if thinking I wanted a rib magazine , not having a pop mate as some features I've enjoyed it was an overall view on mag

I guess jollies & freebies in a 10 year old tatty Searider don't have the same appeal (or advertising revenue) to the editors as a corporate from one of the superyacht tender manfs.
Cynical, moi

and/or people who enjoy reading about those things don't spend as much money with advertisers - so ad revenue is less.

Err, why would people who want to read about RIB refurbs, small boat safety, engine maintenance, trailer repair, SIB cruising etc want to buy a glossy for money when they can read RIBnet for free (or 20 if they have a conscience )?
