The recreational marine
industry generally follows the economy as a whole. The economy is down, so is the marine
industry and this translates into fewer cruisers as fewer folks can take off and leave when the economy is down.
I think we're effected the least here in Mexico
as it's a very welcoming country, can still be cruised inexpensively and is easy to reach - particularly on the West Coast
here are full to overflowing with new marinas
filling up as soon as they come online.
Of course, it helps that you can get a slip here at most marinas for about the same or less than the yearly property tax on a new boat
if the boat were back in the US.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary), but that's what we see....
