Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day will take place Saturday and more than 100 marinas nationwide will participate in an effort to attract new people to recreational boating.
Marinas and Boatyards
Marinas and boatyards offer the vital services, ranging from repairs to slips and seasonal storage, that boaters require.

Developments such as new facilities and new services at these sites help to drive the industry forward.
