ABBRA releases new edition of boatyard guide

Publish date:

The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association released the third edition of its Boatyard and Marina Operators Manual, now renamed the Boatyard Resource Guide.

The guide, last updated in 1996, contains 140 full-color pages of ideas, best practices and resources on a variety of subjects relevant to the skillful operation of a marine service and repair facility.

The articles are crafted in a way that allows the reader to tailor the material to the specific needs of their facility.
