This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers about retail trends, product shortages and overall inventory as the annual boating season gets underway.

The survey further asks dealers to rate the impact of bipartisan infrastructure improvements as proposed in the federal American Jobs Plan and federal climate goals — keynote topics in last week’s virtual American Boating Congress.

Launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research, the survey gauges monthly retail conditions. It also includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, which gauges retailer confidence.

Soundings Trade Only works with Baird to disseminate the survey and report the results.
