NEW: Take the Marina Wage Rate Survey

Marina Dock Age magazine and the Association of Marina Industries have again joined to bring you the Marina Wage Rate Survey.  This survey will look at the average wages for marina-based jobs as well as benefits offered to employees. Please only enter information if your facility is primarily a marina with wet slips, rather than a boatyard or dry storage facility.

Link here to take the survey now, and tell your colleagues! The survey will remain open until April 21.

Marinas in Canada please use this link.


If you have any comments or concerns, please contact:
Anna Townshend, Marina Dock Age editor at 314/241-7355
