Editor’s Letter

oct 2017 li coverThis is where I’ll wax nostalgic about our 10th anniversary as a boating lifestyle magazine. It’s been an amazing journey since our first issue came out at the 2007 Tobay Beach Boat Show. Know-it-alls told us that we’d never survive unless we forgot about boaters and focused exclusively on boats. We didn’t follow that advice, as we were certain that having fun on the water didn’t depend on the type or size of a vessel. No one laughs more on a cabin cruiser or less in a kayak, and a gorgeous sunset over the water is breathtaking whether glimpsed from a jet ski or a sailboat.

Are mega-yachters more excited than water-skiers? Of course the answer is no (just for the record, I’d love someone to invite me along on a ginormous boat to double-check). I know for certain that every kind of a vessel amps up the appetite, and when it comes to speed, well, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, getting somewhere fast is elating, but the journey can be just as exhilarating when it’s leisurely.

Focusing on boaters’ experiences has brought us to where we are today. As we embark on our 11th year as a publication, we remain dedicated to making it easy to have fun on your boat, no matter its size, shape, or the way it floats.

Thanks for being part of our first 10 years — we look forward to cruising along with you for the next decade.
