Melbourne this weekend, Zodiac concept store, Haines Signature 502DF

Our fingers are burning up, trying to cover the news and new products coming on to the market this week! We welcome the latest TetraMedia team member, Mark Rothfield, who now heads up Powerboat-World.com and hope you have had a long look at our new site as well www.fishingboating-world.com for industry views, news, destinations and information.

The Melbourne International Boat Show is on this long weekend, showcasing the best in boating and the marine lifestyle from around the country and around the world. Then there are the countless releases, including the new model Chaparral from the US, as well as new products and activities for all the family. So make it great Queen's Birthday and head to Melbourne Exhibition Centre from this Thursday.

There is plenty more news too this week, with a profile on extraordinary concept stores, Captain Nemo's, which are native to Queensland, but house the range of Zodiac RIBs and inflatables, as well as other products for pools, spas and the great outdoors. The French Zodiac delegates who visited the store at Helensvale on the Gold Coast were so impressed, they deemed it 'tres unique'.

Donna Morris from Australian Superyacht Crew Recruitment & Training sheds some light on what makes good crew, the opportunities in the global industry and the value of accredited training.

And finally, a preview of the hands-on fishing clinics and many more attractions at the Sydney International Boat Show this year, July 28-August 1.

Hope you are entertained and informed this week.
