I'd have to say it's true. At least in my case. I've been using muscles that I forgot I had and loosing weight, and my overall attitude is better since I got the boat. Then again, I led a pretty sedintary life when I was playing with power boats and fishing.
I have noticed a lot of bruises and scrapes I forget how I got, but haven't fallen in the bilge yet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It takes me about 3 days at sea to get land sick, its just feels like i'm off balance. Some might say I'm always a little off Never been sea sick, even at the tail end of a hurricane.

I just had knee surgery three weeks ago to realign my patella. I didn't injure myself on a boat though.. What you typed just made me cringe.

Anyway, here is the link to the article sailingdog:

Aside from the obvious benefits obtained from sea air and related exercise, I recall reading results of a similar survey some years ago, which correlated another statistic.

Most boat owners are of medium income or above, in order to afford this expensive sport. Therefore, typically consisting of a higher percentage of college graduates, over the "average" non-boater. People of higher education and greater reasoning skills, know best how to remain healthy, throughout their lives.

On the other hand, I also had lateral and medial miniscus tears surgically repaired on BOTH knees, as a result of separate falls from my boats . . . occuring through my stupidity while on the hard. That disproves the smart gene theory.
