Boating Industry Canada's Newsweek

HOW DO YOU LIKE THE NEW NEWS WEEK?

This is now the fourth week of the new Boating Industry Canada News Week and we'd like to know how you like it.

Compared to the original version that was the first in the Canadian market and very successful for over a decade, we've upped our game from typically eight stories to 20+ stories every week.

Our primary focus is the Canadian market, but we realize our readers are marinas, dealers, brokers, distributors and Canadian manufacturers who do business all over the world, so events, news and new products from global markets are sure to be important to you.

Recognizing that, we have added far more news story content.

We also added regular Marina Profiles, Industry Research data and also a Stock Ticker page so you can easily monitor the trends among the publicly traded marine companies - all in one fast and very complete weekly "read". We welcome your comments!
