E10 facts, Butanol the alternative? Integrity expands range & factory

To make deadline today I had to leave some stories for tomorrow. I suggest if you have time yourself, you grab a cuppa and a sandwich and sink your teeth in to our colossal feature this week - the complete facts and figures in E10, as well as a ray of light which shines as a possible alternative for the marine industry, butanol.

It's worth knowing all the details of E10's supposed environmental credentials, which groups are supporting its introduction and what US and Australian governments, industry experts and engine manufacturers are saying about ethanol.

Our profile this week is Integrity Motor Yachts - creating a buzz with buyers impressed with the range's quality and value and finding steady sales success despite a challenging market.

There is news about this year's Rosehill Trailer Boat Show, scheduled March 17-18 with more than 50 exhibitors, free admission and free parking, aiming to attract in excess of 11,000 visitors over the three days.

There is also the preliminary report from the Melbourne Summer Boat Show last weekend which enjoyed sunny skies and strong support from crowds and exhibitors. Then there's excellent news for exhibitors at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show this year - a brand new, extremely high-tech marquee which will serve as the Superyacht Pavilion.

Fishing, new products, opportunities, some great gear and environmental news - in all, plenty worth reading to hopefully inspire, inform and add to your business tools.

Have a great week and pop in for updates daily.
