LARGO - Oliver Kugler conceived his big idea while boating on Father's Day 2003. He and his wife, Bethann, decided Tampa Bay boaters didn't need another fishing magazine, so last June the couple launched Boaters i, a quarterly publication targeting pleasure boaters in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.

The "i" is the international symbol for information. "I'm not a fisherman by any means," said Kugler. "I joke with people that I tend to feed the fish. I don't catch anything."
