You are not wrong, but...
This statement fails to adequately apply the rules of deductive reasoning since the two categorical propositions assume a non-satisfactory conjunction and are conditional on both the major and minor premises sharing universal affirmatives that are mutually consistent and stationary, otherwise non-present as the argument is posed.
Because of the statement's non-contextuality (i.e. for a non boater) it fails to completely provide direct proof, contrapositive proof, or proof by contradiction.
You need to throw in an additional conjunction corresponding with a particular affirmative to completely satisfy logical transversality conditions.
Your conclusion is correct (in my opinion
) even if it uses incomplete syllogistic logic.
