...but I kinda laughed at my expense when I read the notice that the balance of remaining issues will be paid out with AK issues, and I already have an AK sub thanks to my ACA dues.
Iam glad they adressed|

They addressed the remaining issues on peoples subscriptions. I wasn't aware of this other magazine so I hope its good. Iam in Buffalo NY so I paddle in Canada alot so a Canadian based magazine might even have trip stores of say Georgian Bay were I kayak camp.

We always got our SKM at the end of an even-numbered month. I don't think we got one at the end of December, so I suppose their big exit issue is running a bit late. Waiting to see what the notice in ours says, since we do not belong to ACA.
Got mine yesterday, sad ...|

to see it go. Foredeck, from Chris and the Letters, all tributes, are great.
Got mine too.|

But I got my last issue about a year ago. There were just too few articles that caught my interest and some of the kayaks they reviewed were of little, or no interest at all. I think they tried very hard to produce a great magazine, but in the electronics age I guess it's a vanishing entity--sadly.
End of an era|

Last issue is great|

Just packed with good articles.

All the articles were interesting, and I grinned a bit at how they included both a Florida trip article and a SE AK one in the same winter issue.

I agree with most every comment|

I even understand where magooch is coming from. However I feel it is truly a loss for the sea kayaking community. It was certainly a quality source of first rate information. I am very glad we still have the pnet and qayaq web sites, but will miss the magazine.

Canoe and Kayak magazine would follow suit and close up too. What a P.O.S.
I hadn't subscribed to Sea Kayaker|

in about 5 years. they lost me as an audience, they lost the sport, and failed to adapt to the changes in the sport and to the internet.

I am sorry to see the loss of an iconic kayaking magazine. I have a stack that is about two and a half feet tall of old Sea Kayaker Magazines. Their articles and reviews, especially of kayaks, was without compare. Reviewing old issues is like seeing the history of kayaking. Even the old advertisements are fun and informative.
