I'm confused...multiple threads on this subject plus I'm not an expert on boating mags...there seems to be one for every topic from coracles to Fleetwood trawlers...so is this the Rib Magazine as in Hugo Montgomery what's-his-face? And, if so, what happens to my subscription? Does it carryon now as a subscription to the new magazine?

As I believe its the same magazine, ie RIB Magazine, however with a dedicated section to the powerboat market, hence the rebrand.

I know it is their wish to keep their RIB heritage so the magazine will be focused on RIBs however still be able to cater for the other markets.

Subscriptions etc will continue the same, you will just recieve the magazine in its new format.

I have to confess I stupidly didnt look at the other threads before posting, just copy and pasted the email I got from the office.

If you have specific questions I suggest that you contact the RIB office, I am sure they will be happy to help, as for myself I do not know all the ins and outs as it were.

I'm slightly surprised that on the one hand OHM/Rib Mag claims to be going from strength to strength and on the other they have decided to dilute the brand by moving into the wider "powerboat space" at a time when other leading publishers have just exited from it. It seems more like poorly thought out opportunism than a cohesive long term strategy?

Still I'm sure HMS knows what he's doing, the mag has had various names (Small Boat & Rib; Rib International, Rib magazine) over the years and people still seem to buy it even though there is an annual "Rib mag" is rubbish thread on here.

Hi

Has anyone had seen a new edition of the magazine? I heard it was going to be out before the start of the boat show but I've not seen anything.

Want to reserve judgment on the changes till I get a copy. But looking at whats on the cover, I've seen on there web site my hopes aren't high.

Ross
