Soundings Trade Only was honored with an APEX Award of Excellence in the Financial and Investment Writing category.

The award was for a package of articles that ran in the November 2008 edition, written by associate editor Beth Rosenberg and freelance writer Reagan Haynes called, "Turbulent Waters."

Rosenberg's article was called, "Will the 'bailout' have buoyancy?" and Haynes' article was titled, "Marine finance upheaval squeezes dealers."

"These articles provide a clear snapshot of what was happening in the financial markets this fall, and how these historic events affected the boating industry," said Soundings Trade Only editor Bill Sisson. "Since the recession started, we have worked hard to give our readers the up-to-date information and analysis they need to guide them through these turbulent times."

According to APEX organizers, there were about 3,785 entries in 122 categories for this year's awards. One hundred "Grand" awards were given out, along with 1,158 "Awards of Excellence."
