I guess they have to show they are serious to the ad market rather than just being ribs with occassional hardboats.
Old mag Dec/Jan 2012
.. still havent read it .. cant be bothered flicking through all the hard stuff .. one article caught my eye about the west coast though .. needs a cold guinness and a Sunday afternoon I think for best appraisal
84 pages inc covers
24 pages of adverts
60 pages of content
4 rib reviews + tender review
7 "rib" features
New mag Feb/Mar 2012
116 pages inc covers
30 pages of adverts
80 pages of content (21 pages hardboat)
4 rib reviews + engine review
9 features which would have been "fine" in the old mag
In addition you get a hard boat review (actually quite an interesting one), a review of the hardboat market at the "sensible" priced end, and a couple of other articles which were more SB&R territory than RI.
At a glance it looks quite different - but when you compare old and new - the new stuff is "extra".
