5 minutes of your time, if you could please....

Fellow boaters. In this time of drought, I was hoping you could help a homey out. I'm taking a statistics class, and my team and I are working on an 8 week project on collecting and analyzing data. It's a business class and I have chosen outdoor sports as our "target market." We've come up with a series of questions and I would like you guys to answer them. If you don't want to post the answers, you can email them to me at aevanlloyd@yahoo.com
