Re: Messing About In Boats magazine, don't take for granted.
- I too have enjoyed MAIB, to the extent that I miss it when it is late
in coming. Since the magazine is not available on newsstands, it must
be an uphill struggle to attract enough new subscribers to keep pace
with attrition, let alone grow. It occurred to me that by giving a
subscription to my local library, MAIB could gain a useful amount of
exposure. Since I am in Florida, there could be a number of seasonal
visitors here who discover the magazine and subscribe when they head
north again. Maybe some others in the group interested in keeping
MAIB going could duplicate this tactic.
