The third survey of a third of CRT boat licence holders was carried out by an independent research consultant in March and April 2018. The survey has now covered all boaters who have held a boat licence in the last three years. In June, CRT published a summary of the last survey results, which included every new boat licence holder who had not been surveyed in 2016 or 2017. For comparison, the results included the average over the three-year survey cycle (3YA).
