AN EXPERT EYE ON BOATING​​

HOW IT ALL BEGAN


BOAT-MagGuides was conceived by its founder some years ago when he was operating a marine products importing and sales rep business near Annapolis, also the home port of his Cal 25 sailboat. As do most people in the marine trades, he  mostly depended on boating magaazines to keep up with  developments in the leisure marine market and industry. The big problems with that are a). which  magazines among many should be followed, b). how to find the time from business to do the needed  reading,  One day, as he gazed on a pile of boating magazines by his desk, he had a  "AHA!" moment. How about a "readers' guide" that would identfy and briefly describe, lists of substantive articles published in leading leisure marine magazines for later, detailed review by boaters and members of the leisure marine and media industries. . For sure, in today's information world,  finding and applying useful information is a leading key to enjoyable boating and business success.

The founder finally was able to follow up on his "AHA!" moment. BOAT-MagGuides is his result. 
(He has special interest in his home waters of Annapolis and Chesapeake Bay and its certified Clean Marinas.)

ADVICE TO ALL -  USE IT!

BOAT--Mag Guides is a new and unique leisure marine information resource. It is carefully designed to meet the infomation needs of the broad range of recreation boating interests - boaters, industry members, and the media.  Every boating magazine contains potentially useful information. A central question is, how to differentiate between merely interesting content and substantially useful content. BOAT-MagGuides resolves this problem by using experienced boaters as analysts. They make every effort to identify and report articles that are substantantially useful and of broad application in the recreation boating community, for boat users and industry members alike. Particular attention is given to content about boating at Annapolis and Chesapeake Bay and its designated Clean Marimas.
