Marine BusinessWe hope that your business is having a great season for sales this year, but we are asking our Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest readers to complete a brief 10-question survey to help us know what the sales environment is really like across Canada.

The survey link was sent out on Thursday, July 16, 2020 and it will remain open for your participation until Thursday, July 23. We plan to report the results in the July 28th edition of News Week.

As we come up to the last weeks of July and we approach the halfway point of summer 2020, we should all be getting a pretty clear picture of where sales are this year.

We thank you in advance for your participation. If you have not yet completed the survey, here is the link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XPWSC3J
