ABBRA releases new edition of boatyard guide

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.

Featured articles offer thought-provoking material to enhance programs in individual yards, with topics ranging from preparing a strategic plan, to severe storm and hurricane preparation, to an overview of environmental law. The articles are crafted in a way that allows the reader to tailor the material to the specific needs of their facility.

The guide is available for $25 to ABBRA members and $175 to non-members. Click here for an order form, which can faxed to (401) 247-0074 or mailed to ABBRA, 50 Water St., Warren, RI, 02885.
