RE: “The Log bids farewell to Sea Magazine and Boating World” (Dec. 13-26)
I love The Log and have for many years. Always a good read. Sea Magazine became boring for the most part, very predictable. Some good tips on maintaining and fixing stuff but IMHO not enough content from people out boating.
Parimal- I can’t tell you enough how much I value your work – you and Lindsey ARE The Log. Your publication is the only one I know that treats boating content in the same professional manner and editorial standards as the LA Times or New York Times. It’s factual. It’s always up-to-date. And it’s TRUSTED. You two truly know what ‘news’ is to the California boater and beyond. Thanks for carrying the torch, and I do hope to see SEA and Boating World return.
On behalf of Recreational Boaters of California (RBOC) for which I currently serve as president, allow me to add my compliments to you and The Log for your outstanding journalistic efforts. While I am sad that Sea Magazine is discontinued, I am grateful that we have The Log as our primary source of information on the Southern California boating scene. Keep up the good work!
I love The Log. Since acquiring a boat and slip in Shoreline Marina September 2018, I am always intrigued to pick up the latest copy of The Log, so that I feel informed, of this vast industry, mostly California related. There are so many entities involved in each boating project that I could never stay on top of each one. So, I rely on The Log, to keep me updated, but not overwhelmed. Keep up the GREAT EFFORT, it’s very much appreciated. The paper is well laid out, and a joy to read.
RE: “Boater Bars: A Place to Bond and Connect” (Dec. 13-26)
You need to go to the Chowder Barge in Wilmington. It’s a floating restaurant with beer and wine. It’s in Leeward Bay Marina. Lunchtime or 3-5 p.m. you will see a lot of boaters having a beer and lunch. Liveaboards, cruisers, commercial divers, etc.
