In November, Julius “Butch” Nesbitt was handed a 12-year prison sentence three years after he was believed dead. Prosecutors say he faked his death while boating in 2007 to avoid charges of selling oxycodone in South Carolina.

PMY has the largest circulation of any powerboat magazine. Every month about 148,000 anglers, weekend cruisers, bluewater voyagers, megayacht owners, and sundry boat nuts peruse our pages.
More than 90 percent own a powerboat, some two or three. Presumably the rest are temporarily boatless but important to us nonetheless.
