Take the Pulse Report Survey

1_Pulse Report_Boat Launch

This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers to rate the potential impact of bipartisan infrastructure improvements, as proposed in the federal American Jobs Plan, and federal climate goals, both of which were keynote topics during last week’s American Boating Congress.

The report also asks dealers about retail trends, product shortages and overall inventory as a new boating season gets underway in much of the country.

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 partnered with Baird to disseminate the survey and report the results.
