Bonanza in Boating


Abstract:
The phenomenal boat boom in North Carolina can be attributed to the nationwide surge in boating enthusiasm, along with a growing recognition that the state is rich in pleasure-boat waters. In addition, boat sales have now incorporated the American institution of installment buying, resulting in increased boat buying in the state. It is estimated that one family in six owns some kind of watercraft, from skiff to cruiser, and boat ownership has spread to all classes.
