Oddly enough, I seem to remember reading that Arizona had one of the highest per capita rates of boat ownership
in the US.
The girls on Lake Havasu seem to draw a pretty good crowd, especially around certain festive occasions. A few other noteworthy lakes also see regular use by boaters. That combined with lots of people looking to beat the heat, low cost of housing, & a generally high percentage of adults owning big ticket toys, probably contribute to that seemingly out-of-place statistic.
