  1. I still can’t download the new issue. I reached out to customer service for assistance. I was provided a new log in and password from the rep which still does not work. My subscription expires in 2 days. I have stopped the auto renewal due to these issues. I have subscribed to PS for 4 years now at least. You need to get these issues fixed before launching new platforms. As a side note, not having a hard copy of the magazine was already off-putting.

  2. Congratulations! You have an outstanding sales prevention department.
    Online payment system is unfriendly and unnecessarily complicated.
    Did you beta test your system before paying your software vendor in full?
    BTW, many of us like to read a hard copy and get away from eye straining screens.

  3. I’m a long time subscriber – more decades than I can remember. My user name has changed over time, along with changing boats. Publication very helpful for sailors of all ages and experience.
    I can access just fine, using Firefox on Mac OS. But I much prefer reading hard copy, rather than on line. On line is nice for searching, and keeping issues on my computer. So that is nice when cruising. But hard copy is so much nicer to read. I’ll likely just download the pdf, then print out hard copy to have on hand, and read.
    Good luck to others having a hard time logging on.
    Fair Winds,
