BREAKING NEWS: the Progressive Norwalk Boat Show is begin cancelled for 2020.

Kind of expected, but thought maybe they'd pull it off since CT and NY are doing so well, and it's outdoors.

Connecticut Marine Trades Association
Connecticut Marine Trades Association(CTMA) released these updated smart guidelines for how to keep boating and marine services open, safe, and accessible for everyone to enjoy the summer. These guidelines from CMTA reinforce the current recommendations and mandates from the CDC and State of Connecticut.
Several Connecticut boat companies and Connecticut Marine Trades Association have noticed an increase in recreational boating business during the pandemic.
Thanks for sharing, Gowrie Group!

"The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas(MRAA), along with trade association partners from across the marine industry, recently released a 58-page publication aimed at helping marine dealers operate safely in a new marketplace concerned with the COVID-19 health crisis. The publication, titled “Guide to Operating Your Boat Business Safely,” provides a manual for running an organization that is safe for employees, customers and communities across North America. It also includes articles, tips, best practices, downloads, and spreadsheets that will help you adjust your business practices for the new COVID-19 guidelines.

Thank you to Connecticut Marine Trades Association for your participation and support!
The Connecticut Marine Trades Association has issued smart guidelines for how to keep boating and marine services open, safe, and accessible for everyone to enjoy this spring and summer. Following these simple suggestions will help ensure your own safety, the safety of others, and the safety of marine employees, so we all may enjoy boating in the coming weeks and months. The guidelines from the CMTA reinforce the current recommendations and mandates from the CDC and the State of Connecticut for stopping spread and social distancing best practices.
Positive news for our marine industries! Governor Lamont of CT, Governor Cuomo of NY, and Governor Murphy of NJ, announced that as of 4/18 marinas, boatyards and marine manufacturers in their states will be allowed to open for personal use as long as strict social distancing and sanitization protocols are followed. After the governors’ announcement, the DEEP issued a list of specific guidelines related to use of boat ramps and marine facilities, to help ensure residents continue to adhere to all the prior COVID-19 executive orders and safety standards. Fully adhering to the guidelines will help keep the marinas, boatyards, and waterways open for all to enjoy. , Connecticut Marine Trades Association
OK, let's switch gears a bit, shall we? If you're seeking alternatives to the more popular boating destinations this season, here are 5 to consider (provided the individual New England states will allow transients to enter their waters). Do you know of others you'd care to recommend?
