Thanks for posting your story, it makes for compulsive reading and brings with it more than a just a little bit of credibility. Given that the magazine was purely self serving, repetitive pap and a contra vehicle given over to the benefit of the few at the expense of the many, I am astounded that anyone would seriously have considered buying the company.
However, I wish you success in redressing any wrongs which you may have suffered. I also expect that if what you say is the truth ( and it seems you have a good amount of evidence to support your claims), the sailing world will harshly judge the oddly named Bob Bitchin and Capt Woody and will look elsewhere for inspiration.
I confess to having done just that, many years ago.
Thanks again and best wishes.
