A monthly survey is asking marine retailers to give feedback on market conditions in June, and weigh in on their comfort level traveling to and attending fall boat shows in the midst of the coronavirus.

The brief, five-question survey, called the Pulse Report, was launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research in 2013 to take the pulse of current retail conditions.

Trade Only Today later partnered with Baird to help distribute the survey and report its results.

The surveys analyze industry data points like new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. They also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers.
