“We wanted to discover the basic health and lifestyle differences between boaters and nonboaters,” says Daniel Green, assistant director of communications for the NMMA. “This study finally quantifies what sets boaters apart.”
The organization also tapped national health data from Impulse Research to compare the overall well being of people who spend time on the water versus those who don’t.
You might agree with the study’s overall conclusions—that the four most commonly cited benefits of boating are building relationships, going fishing, reducing stress, and simply enjoying the outdoors—but do you fit the rest of the profile of the average U.S. boater?
