Over eight years ago, Bill developed the idea to publish a cruising powerboat magazine as a result of his own search for a trawler. With his wife, Laurene, the couple was in the midst of switching to a cruising powerboat after years of sailing. They decided to launch the magazine to help the growing number of people who shared this same interest in joining the wonderful cruising under power lifestyle. (See Philosophy of PassageMaker for the whole story!) Cofounders of PassageMaker Magazine, Bill and Laurene Parlatore are Editor In Chief and CEO respectively. Bill spends most of his time aboard trawlers and passagemakers-writing and photographing interesting and new boats around the country and visiting the builders around the world! He never misses a boat
show, focusing on identifying new products helpful to trawler owners and enjoying his conversations with the magazine's many readers. As CEO of PassageMaker Magazine, Laurene focuses on the magazine's business activities. Working with advertisers, making sure the magazine is available in as many stores as possible for the cruising community, and creating new directions for the company, including the TrawlerPort event series. Also at the many boat shows, Laurene can always be found in some conversation with a reader, advertiser or TrawlerPort speaker catching up since their last meeting!

Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
