When driving through the open water and coming up to another vessel how often do you throw a hand up and wave at the other driver? In a recent study by Boat US, 99.4% of boaters agreed they wave while boating.
It doesn't matter what type of vessel you're driving, but a quick smile and wave is a universal gesture to your boating comrad.
Folks are in a happier state of being while on the water. Boaters are said to be more social and the past time is a great way for friends and family to relax and enjoy each other.
Let's be honest, how often do you wave at the person sitting next to you in a car on the road?
