Nominations are also being accepted for the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Hall of Fame Award through July 21. NMMA's most prestigious recognition, the annual Hall of Fame Award honors industry icons: visionaries whose outstanding contributions have and continue to advance, guide and transform the recreational boating industry. The NMMA Hall of Fame Award will be presented during the IBEX Industry Breakfast on October 3 in Tampa.

And receiving an award, Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC), the world's largest marine technology company, has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in 2023-2024 by U.S. News & World Report. Additionally, the magazine published its Best Companies for Work-Life Balance and Best Companies for Quality of Pay, with Brunswick finishing in the top ten of all companies on both of those lists.

Of the thousands of publicly-traded companies that were surveyed for this inaugural award, only 200 are recognized across six factors of employee wellbeing including quality of pay and benefits, work/life balance, job and company stability, physical and psychological safety, career development, and belongingness.

While the economy remains a major discussion subject, companies continue to expand or merge.

This new partnership will allow Coboaters members to access online sailing lessons and will help NauticED students find boats and crew and start their co-boating adventures. Coboaters introduced the concept of co-boating in North America in early 2022. Co-boating means sharing time on the water and sail more and better with friends. Skippers share their boat while crew members share their time, skills and experience.

For more than a decade, Capt. Chris Parker has been helping recreational boaters on the Chesapeake Bay get home, first as a hired captain and later a port manager of several TowBoatUS on-water towing ports in the Tidewater region. Wanting his own TowBoatUS on-water towing and assistance company, he journeyed east across the bay in 2019 to open TowBoatUS Crisfeld in Maryland. Now on the bay's western shore, the captain is new owner of TowBoatUS Reedville, Virginia, essentially bookending both shores with his company's TowBoatUS coverage.
