Today is National Boating DayPosted on
Today marks National Boating Day, following the passage of resolutions in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
“The entire marine industry and recreational boaters nationwide look forward to celebrating National Boating Day,” Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association, said in a statement.
“Not only is recreational boating a beloved pastime, but marine businesses are important parts of their communities and our national economy, creating business opportunities and local jobs,” he added. “Our thanks go to all of the members of Congress behind this resolution for their strong support of the boating industry.”
