I can say that the qaulity of the paper inside the mag is shocking. RIB Magazine, ordered a new paper along with the other titles Oyster House publishes, according to a sample given by their printers. It turned out that once RIB and one other mag was printed on it it looked and felt aweful.
I know dad is in discussion with the printers working to resolve this for the next issue, far from going south and although working on the online editions also, RIB I know is here to stay and has lots in store from what Ive seen, along with RIBEX so no need to fear it following the sad news of Sportsboat.
Hopefully that paper will not be in the next issue. Although I do not work for the magazine, nor can I speak for dad regards the magazine, the above is what Ive observed when popping into their office.
