Re: Where are the younger people?

I personally think a lot of this extends from the price of new boats. Many of them cost the same or more than a small home. And for that you get 40 feet by 12 feet of "space" not all of which is living space. If given the choice between a house and a boat, which do you think most people would buy?

It is also that the majority of people are -not- boat people. Even living and working along the atlantic ocean, the percentage of the population that actually owns a boat is rather low.
