April Approaches!

The good weather is definitely in the air as April approaches! If your phone isn't already ringing with customers asking you to get their boats ready for launch, it certainly will soon.

Don't forget - we still except your career opportunity employment ads and publish them here in News Week without charge as long as they are marine industry jobs. If you are an Ontario marine business, I hope you have been able to point a young person in the direction of the Boating Ontario apprenticeship training program. That represents a very good opportunity for a young person with an interest in boating.

This is also a great time of year for new product introductions and we particularly liked the Quick Cleat for inflatable's. Lots of people have inflatable boats for one reason or another, but is rare to find one with enough points to attach lines or fenders to keep sharp parts of the dock away. Another cool product opportunity is to offer your customers docking lights. For people coming into the yacht club or marina harbor at night, or for a cottager who's trying to find the boathouse slip in the dark, it's surprising more boats aren't equipped with docking lights. Here's a great up sell opportunity.

We also want to take a moment to congratulate Lowrance on 60 years in the business! Their equipment has been helping fishermen bring home the catch every summer.
