ADVERTISE IN 'ON THE EDGE'

REACH FISHERMEN EVERYWHERE!

18,000 magazines were printed in time to debut at the 2017 Miami Intl. Boat Show! Click on photo to enlarge They are now being distributed (year-round) to marine locations on the mainland, from Key West to New Jersey. Magazine is also online (20,000 web viewers) and a link to the online magazine is provided our 5,400 Facebook followers! There are two racks featuring the magazine on the ABMT's 1282 lb. IGFA world record centerpiece in the St. Thomas airport (baggage claim area) and the publication is widely distributed around the island via public racks.

On The Edge is a great advertising buy and the profits of the magazine help to support our marine vocational program.
