“This is an exciting social media milestone for the Discover Boating campaign, as we’ve worked to reignite Discover Boating this year,” Carl Blackwell, president of Grow Boating Inc. and chief marketing officer for the National Marine Manufacturers Association, said in a statement. “Social media is not a one-time communication. We have a community that we can share information with year-round while getting valuable feedback. We’ll continue to cultivate the passion of boaters and boating enthusiasts looking to share their love of life on the water.”
