>>> DIY Boat Owner

This is a nifty looking "hands on" type boating magazine that has now been purchased by Mad Mariner. They are offering subscriptions at a lower rate than before, so might be a good time to check it out.

For months now, Mad Mariner readers have been telling us they want more to read on do-it-yourself projects. We heard you — and we are proud to announce the acquisition of DIY Boat Owner.

DIY is a quarterly print magazine that offers expert advice on maintenance, repairs and upgrades for just about every part of your boat, from engines and fiberglass to rigging, electronics and paint. Published since 1995, DIY employs some of the best marine writers in the industry, and it promotes the technical standards set by the American Boat and Yacht Council.

The magazine will strengthen our ability to deliver high-quality information to you, which can improve your boat, keep you safe and save you money. Along those lines, we can start with a break on DIY. To help Mad Mariner readers get acquainted, we have cut prices dramatically. A one-year subscription is now more than 30 percent lower than the cover price — less than it costs to buy lunch in most restaurants.

For full disclosure, I write some paid articles for Mad Marinerâ„¢.
