BOATING IS BACK!

You may have read about, or even experienced first-hand, the decline in sales and other revenue the boating industry suffered during the last recession. Well, according to industry experts and observers, it looks like that trend has reversed and we're well on our way back to smooth sailing. Between a healthier economy, concerted marketing efforts and outreach programs, the tide has turned in the industry's favor.

Not only are sales on the rise - up by 4.7% for power boats in 2013 - Americans are flocking to the water in record numbers, with some 88 million participating in recreational boating last year. According to Carl Blackwell, a spokesman for the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), "Florida, Texas, Michigan, Minnesota and New York were the leading boating states" in 2013.

This is good news for everyone for, as NMMA's infographic shows, recreational boating has a significant impact on Florida's economy.
