The regional boating magazine Carolina Currents is up for sale, less than three years after it was launched by the husband-and-wife team of Rob and Jo Lucey.

Jo Lucey reportedly has been offered a job that will move the couple to Houston. Rob Lucey says he will do an issue or two remotely until new owners can be found for the magazine.

"We hope somebody will adopt our child and continue where we leave off," Rob Lucey said in a statement.

This publication remains consistently profitable, according to its owners, and includes a Web edition and boat show event. Contact ProBiz Consulting, (919) 863-4160 or click here.
