Almost every boating magazine with a little self respect has a Web site up and running. Unfortunately, for quite a few, their idea of a Web site is an advertisement with a cover picture and subscription information. How boring! It is safe to say that a lot of boating magazines are not dealing well at all with the competition and opportunities inherent in the Web. Here are some excellent exceptions:
