End of Summer Brings Start of Boat Show Season

The cold rain hammering on my office window and the lack of leaves on the trees make it hard to be in denial about summer ending. The boating business really never slows down though…as the winterizing accelerates into full swing, repairs and maintenance get underway and the Canadian boating industry gears up for the boat show season. Last week Fort Lauderdale rolled out its finest at the FLIBS show, and the Marine Dealer Conference in Florida is set to roll on Nov 16. As you switch speeds from summer to fall to winter in Canada, enjoy reading about what else is going on all over your industry. There is no shortage of news and activity. Happy reading!
