WE RECOMMEND: Attend the Marina 101 course prior to the 10th Annual Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour to arm yourself with enough industry knowledge to walk the docks of the Study Tour facilities and see things from a brand new perspective, from the eyes of a marina manager.  Attendees will see first-hand how some of the best run facilities in Southeast Florida get it done.
