Become a magazine publisher

Good Old Boat reader (and occasional author) Rob Lucey and his wife,
Jo, started a new regional boating magazine in North Carolina a couple
of years ago: http://www.carolinacurrents.com.

Now that they've done a lot of the hard stuff (we can attest that
getting a new magazine up and going is not easy), Jo has been offered a
job she can't refuse which will move the couple to Houston. We wish
them luck and pass this opportunity along to our readers. There's no
job security like working for yourself!

Rob writes: "I'll do an issue or two remotely, but we hope somebody
will adopt our child and continue where we leave off. If you know of
any hapless sorts who would like to make a living in the nautical
publishing trade while enjoying life in the Carolinas, send 'em our
way!"

Here's a classified ad Rob wrote for publication in their magazine:
