While we’ve been proud of the previous 21 digital magazines we’ve produced, this issue—the January/February 2017 edition of Speed On The Water Magazine, which can be downloaded for FREE here—is a little more meaningful than most because it’s chock-full of boat reviews from the Miami International Boat Show where we reconnected with the most professional test drivers in the industry, Bob Teague and John Tomlinson.

We had a blast spending a couple of days with our former Powerboat magazine test team colleagues, and we hope you enjoy our reviews and speedonthewater.com chief photographer Pete Boden’s photos of five special boats from the show—a 33-foot Airship RIB, a 35-foot Formula featuring an all-new Ilmor Marine engine, the Norwegian-built Predator Powerboats 447-R, the first outboard-powered Outerlimits SL 41 and and the issue’s cover boat: a unique Skater 478 V-bottom.

Beyond the reviews, the issue is loaded with event features, including a complete 2017 events preview and highlights from both the Florida Powerboat’s Miami Boat Show Poker Run and the MTI Owners Fun Run, which also took place the week after the boat show was over.

You can also read about the renovation of the famous Gentry Eagle, a 46-foot Scarab owned by the legendary Tom Gentry, the new Livorsi Marine multi-stepped trim tabs, several cool Gear items and more.

Last but not least, enjoy the candid Q&A with the one-and-only Peter Hledin, the founder and owner of Skater Powerboats.
