September marks a special time for Southern Boating. We turn 45 years old, and we couldn’t be happier to still be alive and kicking after all this time.
Logos, covers, mascots, oh my! A lot has changed in the past 45 years: advancements in electronics and technology, boat construction, hull styles, and so much more. It’s been an absolute pleasure to be along for this crazy ride that is the marine industry.
Take a look at some of our favorite covers from years past. They show the wide variety of topics and styles better than I could ever explain myself.
