In my experience, boating is something that most people find to be of great personal value. Expressions like “change of scenery”, “open spaces”, “serenity” and “great social life” are examples of phrases that are common when people talk about their experiences at sea and why they like it so much. I would dare to say that an overwhelming number of people would love to own or rent a boat on a regular basis. That is, if it could only be as predictable as a summer villa or a high-end hotel!
