    1.0 out of 5 stars Massive decrease in quality October 11, 2011
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I have been a subscriber for 15 years. In the last five the quality has dramatically decreased and decreased to the point of ridiculousness. It has gotten so bad that I will not be renewing my subscription and I encourage everyone to find better sources for their naval and maritime stories. Below are the major reasons I will not be renewing my subscription.

    1: One of their more prolific authors cannot refrain from inserting his personal biases and opinions into every article. This is especially noteworthy when he is penning the section "Intel File: Latest Naval & Maritime Happening Around the World." That is supposed to be news from the world, but it reads as an ill-informed editorial section. His opinions are presented as fact, and are often quite wrong. Furthermore, this same author has an addiction to the exclamation mark. Looking at the October 2011 edition his "Intel File" entry contains two exclamation marks, this for a section supposed to be factual and unbiased. An exclamation mark, never mind two, is an entirely inappropriate usage of punctuation.

    2: There seems to be no real editing done of articles. The staff credits note that the editor is also the publisher, which is a direct conflict of interest (the editor should be focused on getting things right, the publisher is concerned about getting them done). It's clear which of those interests is winning. Every month I am spotting at least three grammatical, or even spelling, errors. I am a Historian by training so while I have a fair amount of experience with grammar and proofreading, I am by no means a professional in the field. I imagine there are many more errors which a trained eye would spot.

    3: I understand they must sell add space.

    5.0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE EVER IN THE NAVY July 19, 2004
    By taxman
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I have subscribed to this magazine for almost 8 years. I found it by accident on a shelf in a bookstore. I wait by my mailbox about the same date each month waiting for the next issue.
    It combines current events in the US and all other Navies, with articles of a naval nature. It goes into lengthy histories of individual ships, and classes of ships. It provides a complete guide of what is happening to all navies all over the globe. It goes into technical details as far as development of classes of ships, and technologies embarked on board. Many articles are written by the actual sailors who served on board those ships.
    It also tell of development and abandonment of certain naval technologies throughout the years (ever wonder what happened to the Navy's old hydrofoils, they had a recent article). They go into details that only someone who worked, lived, ate, cried and laughed on board would ever know. It also goes into historical events and analysis of the significance of those events. They provide a balanced approach and avoid anything of a political nature.
    It may be boring to those not ever deployed on a REAL SHIP or embarked on a REAL CRUISE (and not on those whimpy ocean liners). However, if you know of anyone ever in the Navy (not the air side-they have their own magazine called "Air Classics"), who went to sea or served on a ship, then a subscription to this magazine is a MUST.
    I have kept every copy of mine over the years and find myself re-reading them over and over.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the read February 15, 2010
    By GJL
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    Like most specialty magazines, this has rather variable editorial quality. I have to restrain myself from editing as I read.

    I expect many of the authors are semi-pro, at best, but that's just fine with me. I'd rather learn from an expert/veteran than hope for the best from a polished journalist who hasn't been there.

    Good stories, mostly, and always leaving me wanting more. I think that works out ....

    4.0 out of 5 stars Need a proofreader! March 2, 2015
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I just bought the current issue of Sea Classics that is now on the newsstand just to check it out coz I'm interested in German U-Boats & ships that get wrecked/go under. I noticed more than a few grammar/spelling errors too. Not good. Makes mag look tacky & second-rate. But apart from that I enjoy reading it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! May 17, 2010
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    I ordered this magazine after my husband saw a copy at a friends home. It has brought back memorys that only those that serve can understand. It is interesting to find out where the ships ended up and why. Keep this wonderful magazine alive for the many men and women who find solace in it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars My Dad Loves It! October 26, 2008
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    Got this for my Dad, who was in the Merchant Marines at the end of WWII and was in the Coast Guard after that. In general he's hard to please, but he's told me several times how much he loves this magazine. He even keeps reminding me to renew his subscription!
