BOATsmart! Canada Recognizes Top Dealer

Deborah Paris, owner of Paris Marine, has been honoured with the first annual BOATsmart! Canada Top Dealer Award.

The award is presented to the dealer who achieves the highest level of sales for BOATsmart! Canada's Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) program. The program includes educational materials and the administration of the PCOC exam.

Paris received a $1,200 gift certificate for Ste. Anne's Country Inn and Spa in Grafton, ON. Next year's award includes a trip for two to Las Vegas, NV (valued at $1,600). Dealers have until November 31, 2009 to qualify for the 2009 Top Dealer Award. The winner will be announced at this year's Ontario Marine Operators Association (OMOA) Conference, which will be held November 29 to December 1 in Kingston, ON.

BOATsmart! Canada offers a variety of resources to marine dealers that enable them to certify their customers for the PCOC card.
