THE SHORT REPORT - REFRESH (F5) OFTEN

We are busy selling On The Edge ads and assigning the writers their articles. MVP students are learning to drive the boat and to catch fish... that's Boom Boom at the helm! The 11th edition of our annual magazine will be printed (25,000 copies) in time for the Miami Intl. Boat Show and will later be read online by anglers around the world!

The ABMT's Marine Vocational Program (MVP) is celebrating it's first year as a stand-alone 501 (c-3) non-profit vocational training program. Your financial support is both welcomed and appreciated!
