Actually, I'd prefer "All of the above." Can you add that please?

Re: CF Member Demographics (redux)

Aside from the mutually exclusive answers, I am okay with that. However I believe the multiple choice version doesn't support editing. You can always select every option, including "None of the above"...

Dude, that's way too hard. That's like 20 clicks or something.

Actually, it is one of the most impressive polls I've seen in a while - just on girth alone.

Ah, the sacrifices we are made to make for our passion...

Really, the poll is trying to answer too many questions, which is why it has so many options. But it still achieves the same affect and is interesting to look at although I wouldn't want to make any policy decisions based on the "data".

Not sure about that. I'm pretty sure I was conceived on the water in a sailboat.

Tell us more, tell us more...

While I know I wasn't, I often feel I have a genetic predisposition for being on the water...

Re: CF Member Demographics (redux)

For me, it's 2, 3, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15, 18. It will be interesting to see the results when the poll is closed.

5 is the closest, but there is a big difference between a member who has never had a boat, and one who has had many, but is between the last and next for the moment.

Sorry. I see your point.

Not much. I won't solve world hunger or get my windlass installed any faster but it can give you a sense of who is online, if you didn't know already. For example, I knew there were a lot of sailors but I didn't know that sailors apparently outnumber power boaters by 5:1. Sorta interesting to know. Of course, it is completely unscientific and not comprehensive so that gives it less value.
