I’ve seen the national boat sales statistics for the past ten years, by month. There has been a steady uptick the last three months, since boat sales hit bottom in May 2009. According to UF’s BEBR, consumer confidence in Florida is on the rise. The Case/Schiller index shows Miami home prices up more than a percent according to South Florida Business Journal. And according to the Florida Association of Realtors, existing home sales were up in August.

See, this is what I’ve been telling you all along. If more people bought more boats, this whole recession thing would be over already! See you on the water…
