Message From The Editor

Huh?

I'm confused, but in a good way. The reports from our folks at the boat shows, right across the country, indicate that a lot of boats are selling. What I'm not quite understanding is that while almost all the boats sold at the shows are powerboats (including some very nice big ones) the activity in the sailboat end appears to be booming too.

Since that wasn't really reflected at the shows, I'm curious who is acquiring boats and where are they getting them? If you can shed some light on this, please drop us a note.

Are you a new sail owner or do you know one? Did you buy your boat used or outside the show new? It's great that so many Canadians are heading out to the water - more boaters are better for all of us. The powerboat growth I get; I'd love to know what's happening with sail. Thanks.
