Professional BoatBuilder magazine promoted Aaron Porter to editor, replacing Paul Lazarus, who will continue as a contributing editor.

Porter also will assume responsibility for editing the IBEX seminar program.

Porter served as managing editor for five years under Lazarus' direction. Under Lazarus' tenure, Professional BoatBuilder, of Brooklin, Maine, grew from a small marine journal to a technical resource for builders, repairers, designers and surveyors.

Porter came to Professional BoatBuilder in 2005 with an extensive background as a professional sailor, rigger and award-winning marine journalist who wrote extensively about fisheries policy, aquaculture, boatbuilding and other maritime affairs on the Maine coast.

He has been responsible for improving the editorial content on Professional BoatBuilder's website and managing the publication's boat design competitions, and he has shared editorial duties in the production of the print edition of the magazine.
