Marine Survey

The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) has again partnered with Marina DockAge Magazine (MDA) to bring you the annual Marina Trends Survey which is a tool to gauge the current operations of marinas across the country.  

This will be the fifth year that the Marina Trends Survey is conducted. As always, the more participants that take the survey the more value the final report will have. The survey is now open and will remain available until November 8, 2014. It includes about twenty questions designed to be answered with just basic facility operational and financial information. 

 All participants will receive a free copy of the final report on the survey results and AMI will have the official Marina Trends Report for sale at a nominal fee for anyone else who is interested. 

 Portions of the final report will be released in the December issue of Marina DockAge magazine and during the International Marina & Boatyard Conference.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
