"Your magazine is by far the best boating magazine there is.  It is always packed with great articles for us average boaters.  We have had 17 boats in our married life time and currently have a restored 22 foot 1978 Chris Craft Tournament Fisherman.  We live in Harbour Towne in Muskegon, Michigan."

"Thank you so much for sending the hard copy of Scuttlebutt that had our photo in it.  We are now in Punta Gorda FL and guess what I saw at our local West Marine.  Yes, Scuttlebutt.  I just have to let you know again how much I appreciate Scuttlebutt and appreciate all the hard work all of you put into publishing it."

"We have been advertising with Great Lakes Scuttlebutt for about a year. We have received quite a few jobs from our ad – it has more than paid for itself. The folks are easy to work with and took our concept and pictures and made the perfect ad. No pushy salespeople, they are available but not overbearing. I would say it’s definitely worth giving them a shot!"

Killarney Mountain Lodge has advertised in several of the Great Lakes Scuttlebutt Magazine editions and find it an invaluable way to reach out to the market and demographic we are looking to attract to our lakeside resorts in Northern Ontario. They do a quality publication and represent us well to their readership. We consider Great Lakes Scuttlebutt Magazine an important partner going forward to communicate with our boating customers and look forward to a long relationship with them."

Good Morning Savannah,

You guys are too cool!
I do enjoy reading your mag.
Very good equipment resource.
The Guinness corned beef recipe was a hit. [Click Here to View the Recipe He's Talking About]
I look forward to boating in the Great Lakes region again.
Right now we are in the SF Bay Delta area.
We just sold the Formula PC26 and am in the process of picking up a Bayliner 3780 Avanti.
My niece has a Sea Ray Sundancer 280 not to far from Brest Bay and we have been out with them.

I'll be in touch in the future.

Best regards,
Brent King

Where have you been Scuttlebutt?  Wow, actually right under my nose.  I was recently stranded in the service department of my marina and read your publication from cover to cover.  It’s funny how you sometimes conclude that because something is FREE it doesn’t carry much weight.  Au contraire!  What a great magazine!  

I thoroughly enjoy your publication, and all the resources I found—from Kanberra gel, to information on summer destinations on Lake Erie and throughout the Great Lakes.  It’s also nice to connect online with a resource and find live personalities attached to it.  When I submitted Molly’s photo, I did it on a lark.  I’m an amateur  photo-journalist, so I am always looking for places to get my photos accepted.  You guys became a cool outlet, but then to get a personal email afterward—wow, you guys know how to run a smart cool operation!  I’m sold. 

I love, love love this useful little resource, and feel a bit guilty that something this good could be free—You are certainly a valuable, must have part of my sailing resources.

Thanks for reaching out!  Please know you have a loyal newbie among your fans to Great Lakes Scuttlebutt!

Hi Savannah.
Thank you so much for adding our Press Release to the GL Scuttlebutt Web Site. We had increased attendance at the seminar this past Saturday and there were hands up when we asked if our PR was seen in Scuttlebutt. I always get a kick out of that!

The job you do to get all boating subjects out to the boating public is absolutely critical to the success of boating in general and specifically to the promotion of boating safety. Thank you for your support.

Best regards, Ron Simpson
