Abstract: A regional study of Puget Sound and adjacent waters, in Washington State, provided comprehensive information for use in planning of small boat harbors and other facilities required by pleasure boaters. This study included: an inventory of existing facilities and shoreline; measurement of marine facility demand by a questionnaire survey; comparison of demand with existing facilities to determine needs for additional facilities and projections of needs to 1980, 2000, and 2020. The paper displays a systematic approach towards the measurement of boater demand, both of quality and quantity, thus providing techniques for use by planners seeking to plan and develop facilities for pleasure boating.
