Going up in smoke

The marina we are currently in has maybe 250 plus boats .I reckon 85% are sailboats.
A few commercial dive boats and the rest private stink boats.
Usually I don't wander around the rest of the marina but the other day I did and it occurred to me that nearly all the people aboard the stink boats were smoking yet most of the sail boater seem not to be.
Coincidence or do power boaters more often smoke or do smokers prefer power boats?
Chris
