A monthly survey asks dealers to weigh in on September market conditions and provide feedback as to whether they carry more or fewer boat brands than five to 10 years ago.

The five-question survey, known as the Pulse Report, was launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research in 2013. Soundings Trade Only partnered with Baird to help distribute the survey and report its results.

The survey analyzes such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit. It also includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers.
