Boating Industry Canada's electronic newsletter, Newsweek and webiste are part of the marine titles of Kerrwil Publications Limited. Boating Industry Canada's bi-weekly newsletter and website are the primary sources for current boating industry news, marine products, boat reviews and events.

Founded in May 1964 by J.W. Kerr, Jim Wilson, President of Canada Electric and James Wilson President of the Canadian Electrical Contractors Association, Kerrwil Publications Limited has grown into the oldest privately held publishing company in Canada.

"Being a member of the industry first and publisher second has separated us from every competitor we have had. Leading the industry, challenging the status quo and building with a focused eye on the future is what has made Kerrwil a well-established and respected name in the Canadian publishing community.

Kerrwil has been active in many industry associations including the Canadian Business Press – where both J.W. (Jack) Kerr and John Kerr served as Chairmen. Kerrwil is an active member today with the Canadian Business Press, Magazines Canada, BPA Worldwide, and the Canadian Circulations Audit Board.

Kerrwil has nurtured its reputation for being the best we can at what we do. Understanding and meeting our advertisers’ expectations and providing new methods and solutions that generate above average returns is what we do ≈ in print, online, and on site.
While our mandate is to serve the industry first, decades of publishing expertise has led to establishing best practices in publishing in print and on line that dramatically separate us from the competition.

Today, we remain committed to the principles that have brought us this far:

Ongoing investment in audited circulation
Delivering editorial excellence and authority
Actively support the industries we serve
Setting the benchmark for best practices in publishing
Researching, evaluating and sharing superior market knowledge

Kerrwil is your market resource.

UPDATE ON LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION

 

Luxury Tax OppositionFollowing its seventh annual “Day on the Hill” lobby day in Ottawa last month, NMMA Canada is continuing to advocate against the federal government’s proposed 10% luxury tax on recreational boats over $100,000. History has shown that similar taxes have failed to raise the expected revenue for governments while putting thousands of rural and small-town jobs at risk. The industry believes there are other financial measures that can be applied instead of a tax that would be beneficial to government and less impactful on industry.

HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
