Survey says: Boating is Healthy ...

Survey: Boating kids are healthier kids

Children who go boating are physically and psychologically healthier than those who don't, according to a survey conducted by Impulse Research Corp. for the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The online survey was conducted with a random sample of 1,004 parents - half of whom have children who boat regularly and half who don't. Seventy-one percent of families who boat responding to the survey reported having healthy children, compared to 61 percent of non-boating families.

In addition to physical benefits, active involvement in boating seems to play a role in psychological and social development of children, the survey indicates. Nearly two-thirds of responding boaters (63 percent) indicated their children are team players, compared to 53 percent of non-boaters, and tend to be more optimistic and self confident (52 percent compared to 43 percent).

Three-fourths of responding boaters said their children were leaders in their social groups, as opposed to 65 percent of non-boating children.
