    Central Kentucky or Dale Hollow Lake
    '76 SRV195 (our first) -> moved up to
    '78 240 WE (now 4 sale because ->)
    '82 260 DA shared
    A Ford 351, a couple GM 350s and a Cummins 6BT to pull it all (W250)
    What's the prefered magazine now for boat owners? Specifically for inland owners of older SR boats? Just curious, with winter coming I'll need some good reading material to hold me over :grin:

    I really like Passagemaker Magazine the best out of the eight or so boating mags I subscribe.

    I also like "Boating" magazine and "Yachting".

    KRB64: I like Heartland Boating, covers the upper Mississippi and inland water ways.

    Seaworthy is another good one from BoatUS

    For us "smaller boat guys/gals", I'd suggest "trailer boating, and I also recently puchased DIY Boat Owner.

    Yes as long as your everyday is your Daughter Taylor Swift (newest country star) or you are able to everyday consider wearing khaki pants with a Nordstrom flavor of the month Polo shirt while hugging the admiral wearing 3" stilleto's holding a massive blended beverage......I do like SeaRay living to illustrate some of the new models they are churning out, maybe some of the newer boat care product articles but some of the over the top marketing churns my stomach like the throat cramming Admiral's Oprah mag.

    Todd, so I am not the only one that feels this way, huh :thumbsup:[/quote] No, I'm glad to come to your side. Some of it is outrageous. Not my kind of boating. Hey I'm all for bringing a nice outfit from time to time and dining out occasionally, but Here's my favorite boating attire.

    Hey Todd,

    I thought you wear a thong, a big gold chain and one of those baseball hats with a fake pony tail hooked to it when your on the water :wink:

    Yea, I'm with you guys about Mr. & Mrs. Perfect in Sea Ray Living, although I do enjoy reading about how the other 2% do it.

    Chesapeake Bay Magazine is my first choice.

    Getting back to Magazines, I prefer Motor Boating. It's a good cross section of Sport Boats and Cruisers and they are fairly objective with their reporting.
