I've never been much for magazines, but I used to flip through Hot Boat every once in awhile, mostly in the back of the magazine. But I was wondering, are there any magazines just for Jet Boats and V-Drives? I don't think I've ever seen one before. Just looking for one, now that Hot Boat is totally fucked up. And they only had a tiny section for them anyway. Thank you.

Not that I have heard! Maybe we need to start a petition of all us guys that would be willing to subscribe to such a mag if it existed. If the number got big enough, maybe someone would start one???

I would subscribe to it!!!!! I'm only interested in Jet Boats! All the other boats do nothing for me.

I have a couple posts in the Open Water section talking about this very matter. Talking about how Hot Boat and Performance Boat magazines focus in on the Big Boats, but the forums are mostly filled with Jet Boats and V-Drives. Something is seriously wrong with that picture. I guess we Jet Boats and V-Drives just make our own magazine in the forums of the Big Boat magazines. No replies from the big boat guys, yet.:D

The forums are way better than any magazine. Back in the day this would always come up. But when you put the numbers out there, you just could not get enough commitment out there to justify a publication. Very few builders were building new Jets. Now that Greg Shoemaker and BadBlown are making some new hulls. Maybe it might come back.

These forum provide more pics and stories than any mag could accomplish, Than PB for picking up where Crap Boat left off.
