LAS VEGAS – While dealers at the 2004 Marine Retailers Association of America Convention have expressed great excitement about plans for the industry’s Grow Boating campaign, some of them also have questioned whether the $10 million planned to be raised through boat sales will be enough.

During the Industry Leaders Boat Panel held at the convention last night, Larry Russo of Russo Marine, who served as a moderator, said the industry should be mindful it doesn’t underfund the plan.

“We are broken at retail right now,” he explained. “MRAA and retailers are admitting we have clean-up to do, which will take money and time.”
