A word from our editor

At we’re working on one thing: to become the best and most trusted review guide for the gear you need.

Our Boating & Sailing Chief Editor is Bradley Axmith:

I’ve been sailing on the Great Lakes since I was a kid and I spent summers waterskiiing, wakeboarding and fishing too.

Sailing takes up a lot of my life. I have 3 sailboats, including a 72-foot vikingship I built with a group of like-minded mariners.
