With the Covid-19 restrictions starting to ease across the country boating and fishing are back, in some form or other in most states. In this edition you'll find a state by state guide of what's allowed in your state.

There's also plenty of movement in the boating world with boats still being bought and sold, new models being released and there some great deals on offer at the moment.

Next month (July) sees the return of the Melbourne Boat Show, albeit in Virtual form and the Boating Industry Association of Victoria is calling for expressions of interest from exhibitors.

Still plenty more in this edition from right around the country, so, sit back, browse through and enjoy the read

Cheers, See you out on the water
