IRVINE, Calif. – California’s oldest and largest boating newspaper, The Log, has been acquired by the Duncan McIntosh Co., producer of the Newport Boat Show and the Lido Yacht Expo, the company said in a recent release.
The newspaper’s editorial writers and sales staff will remain with the publication at its current offices in San Diego, according to Duncan McIntosh, Jr., president and CEO.
