Trade Only sister publication Soundings magazine will launch a new e-newsletter Tuesday, and the focus of the first issue is the controversial topic of ethanol-blended gasoline.

"Dispatches" is a new electronic publication from the Essex, Conn.-based consumer boating magazine. This first issue examines ethanol and its effect on marine engines, and will encourage readers to speak out.

"Soundings has always been out in front on news and issues that affect boaters, and this new e-newsletter lets us inform readers immediately about breaking news," said editor Bill Sisson.

"The proposed increase of ethanol levels is not just a matter of maintenance problems; it also raises safety questions. That's why we're using the premier issue of Dispatches to inform our readers and encourage them to speak out by the July 20 deadline," he added.

All Trade Only Today subscribers will receive the first issue of Dispatches, and recipients will have an opportunity to subscribe to future issues.

"Just like Trade Only Today keeps the marine industry on top of issues that affect their businesses, Dispatches keeps recreational boaters informed about issues, incidents and interesting developments across the country and around the world," said Sisson.

The print edition of Soundings magazine will continue to offer more in-depth analysis of news and issues that impact recreational boating, plus the features, columns, and how-to and safety advice that readers for more than 45 years have come to expect from Soundings.
