We just got back from Florida!! The weather was beautiful (although the air conditioning made it feel like home) and the conference was well worth our time.
My biggest highlight was the marina tour. We traveled by bus to different marinas in the area and got to see a whole different side of the boating world. For me, this tour highlighted the full spectrum of our industry. Some locations were simply linear dockage for mega-yachts while others were customer service focused boating communities. The final stop was the Derecktor Shipyard, home of the tallest travel lift on the planet. We toured the operation with the General Manager, and he made a comment that stuck with me. “There’s no reason to own a boat other than passion, and it’s that passion that we support.” I couldn’t agree more Mr. General Manager! It is that passion that keeps me on the water and it is that passion that we are trying to support here in Dillon.
Speaking of community, we are going to bring back the Dillon Marina Customer Appreciation Party. Mark your calendars for June 20, 2020 from 4 pm – 6 pm. Come celebrate the beginning of Summer and let us say thanks for being part of our boating community. There will be a concert at the amphitheater that evening so you might as well just stay and shake your booty in Dillon.
Oh! While in Florida I thought of my mega yacht’s name………
Super-Fish-Al…….Now I just need a mega yacht, but you gotta start somewhere.
I hope you are all enjoying the Winter!!
