BIAA national survey, Chaparral adds Robalo, 'Exporter' online edition

What a relief to welcome sunshine and fair winds - all the better for getting on the water. It's a hobby/pastime/lifestyle enjoyed by as many as 5 million Aussies and the value, at least estimated, is many billions of dollars to the economy and a saving in sick days, well adjusted people and families who are not lacking in quality time - or so we assume.

Survey says: measuring the economic and social impact of boating.  BIA WA Nikki Joyce

Very soon, the Australian boating and broader industry will have actual data to show the economic and social impact of boating, as well as busting some misconceptions about who actually enjoys it! (Not just the domain of the rich and famous!)

The BIAA, RMIT and University of Qld, and in collaboration with the University of Michigan in the US, will soon be rolling out a national survey known as 'The Australian Boater Survey', which Nik Parker tells us will demystify boating and shed light on the actual facts and stats.

This week, we bring you an exclusive preview of the aims and applications of the survey.

Power Sail & Paddle 2012 is all about growing participation in recreational marine activities  Marine Queensland

Also this week, plenty to report in the way of new products, launches and local boat shows such as Power, Sail & Paddle in Manly, Brisbane, followed by Rivergate International Boat Show and Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show, along with great news from Chaparral Australia, welcoming a new marque to their arsenal in the sturdy fishing boat under the Robalo brand.

Robalo is the new addition to the aresenal of Chaparral Australia.  Chaparral Australia

Our friends at AIMEX have taken their member publication, 'The Australian Exporter', online, in an easy to access format for everybody, reducing costs and reaching an even broader global market.

Auckland on Water Boat Show  NZ Marine

Then there's an update on the Auckland On Water Boat Show, 27-30 September and much more from NZ and the rest of the Asia Pacific as well, with a sprinkle of international news as well.

So, hope there's something in this week's batch to edify and enhance your business. A reminder, together the online publications from TetraMedia reach a readership of 2.3 million boaties internationally - stats we'll stand by. If you want more info, please get in touch.

Happy boating!
