Abstract

Within each boating activity, three subactivities were identified and the following hierarchy proposed: dayboaters (least specialized activity), overnight cruisers and racers (most specialized activity). It was hypothesized that the overall degree of specialization would increase, while the range of specialization would decrease as one progressed through the hierarchy. The highest mean scores on a specialization index were reported by sail racers, while the sail dayboaters and motor dayboaters reported the lowest average scores. -from Authors
