I like how she addresses the fact they didn't have any tech articles by saying they arent getting any questions......thats funny....the previous owners didn't have any issues getting questions for content.

still not much in there worth reading/looking at for the average joe lake boater/river racer. I do have to give them credit for putting at least one boat in there thats under 25'. :rolleyes:

they still get two thumbs down.... :))ThumbsDwn:))ThumbsDwn

I read the note from the 18 year old girl they have running it ;) and I honestly expected to read an "oh my god, like magazine running is so much fun, it is like the bomb....":D:D

Now, I don't know this girl at all and I'm sure she is very nice (and she is welcome in our jacuzzi any time) but until they get quality (proof readers, decent pics, a website, etc. ;) ) it still doesn't compete with Powerboat....just my .02.

The part that kills me is the Bikini section. If you are going to put them in the mag then put more then one pic a month other wise take it out all together :(

Yeah, I saw that. And she pops off about "serious bloggers out there". She mentions nothing about everyone getting banned and pissed and the fact that most people probably wont be back.

Stupid move on her part to put her email address on there. She says email her if you didnt get a shirt. I need something to change oil in, so maybe I will. LOL!!:D

There is some irony for you hil:)

Last year I posted a question in the tech section of HB. Three months later my post, verbatim, is in HB magazine's tech section under the name of some erroneous guy in Glendora or something like that. I mean it was word for word :((((((

C'mon guys you could have PM'd me or at least said the submission was off the website :)eh:)

I can think of at least 2 girls that would look great in there.....;):D

Agreed...it just seems like they think they have to have girls in bikini's in the mag or something (which of course they do....)...and it comes off as really silly....

LMAO.....I really don't have anything against HB....and I always liked the magazine even with the errors but they have just made some bad business decisions in the past several months....

They still don't have a decent proof reader. Typos all over the place
My thoughts EXACTLY. Every article seems to have spelling mistakes and punctuation errors.
I feel like I'm proofreading a rough draft and have to fight the urge to take out a red pen and make changes.
