YachtMama.com out of business?

Boating Industry magazine received a tip yesterday from an anonymous source who suggested the company officially closed its doors Nov. 5.

Attempts to reach YachtMama.com by telephone and e-mail Tuesday morning were unsuccessful, as were attempts to access the company’s Web site. At least one person, however, has reported difficulty reaching the company as far back as June.
