This roundup of upcoming shows and events includes news from the South Carolina Marine Association and the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association.

The South Carolina Marine Association is holding its second annual Nautical Flea Market from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Sportsman's Island retail center on Daniel Island.

Sea Ray-Scout of Charleston will co-host the event.

"Although we're told the recession is over, anyone who makes their living on the water or enjoys water-related activities knows that boating has not yet reached recovery mode," the association said in a statement. "SCMA hopes that a good old-fashioned flea market will benefit both the sportsmen looking for less expensive equipment as well as marine businesses looking to reduce inventory."

Vendor spaces range from $10 to $50.

The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association, in partnership with the Marine Systems Training Center, is holding its Marine Service Management course Nov. 3-6 at the center in Thomaston, Maine.

"We feel this course is the start of a great relationship between our two associations and a great opportunity for both memberships to have convenient access to high-quality training," said Tuesdi Woodworth, director of the training center, a program of the Maine Marine Trades Association, in a statement.

Now in its seventh year, the association's management course caters to professionals in boatyards and marine service and repair centers. The association's instructors present participants with pointers in such non-technical topics as human resource development, financial controls, customer relations, codes and standards, marketing and sales.

The course also is a prerequisite to obtain the association's Certified Marine Service Manager designation.
