    No doubt there are similarities but the detail will be very different. This is what magazines are good at - updating us on new developments.

    I'm not being all argy bargy but the magazines aren't good at that stuff - they're much better at the stuff this forum does, tips, tricks and new gear. We've gone round in circles a couple of times already but if they were great then they'd have healthy readership levels, there are magazines with healthy circulation figures; but their quality reflects the pitifully small circulation figures. More people live in Portslade-by-Sea than read Yachting Monthly, which at its height had a bigger readership than the population of Newcastle. Sad, but I checked. They've been swamped by the internet and utterly, utterly failed to adapt. And again, another thread with ex-subscribers turning up to explain why we don't buy them anymore and the writers turning up to tell us we're wrong; I wish you'd listen to your customers, I want the magazines to thrive not die.
