    According to a 2020 survey conducted by Impulse Research Corp. boaters are healthier and happier than their non-boating counterparts. Here are some of the findings:

    Landlubbers have been hospitalized slightly more than boat owners (14 percent compared to 11 percent) and tend to be more overweight than their boating counterparts;

    More boat owners said their health is excellent or good (83 percent) than did non boat owners (77 percent)

    67 percent of boat owners said having a boat has contributed to their well-being;

    Boat owners experience greater self-esteem (+10 percent), ability to enjoy life (+9 percent) and a better sex life (+7 percent);

    Non boat owners are more prone to feeling useless (+8 percent), lonely (+7 percent), unhappy (+5 percent) and fatigued (+4 percent);

    Nearly two-thirds of boat owners said owning a boat has brought their family closer;

    Most boat owners said the benefits of owning a boat include being outdoors (89 percent), spending time on the water (85 percent), being able to unwind and leave pressures behind (79 percent) and finding tranquility (71 percent).
