DescriptionA written 7-item self-report scale on sensitivity to disgust and participation in watercraft activities was administered to 450 seasonal park employees. Correlations indicate that nonparticipation in seven different watercraft sports was weakly related with reactions of disgust to contact with natural bodies of water (rpbis= -.12 to -32, p<.01). Negative affective reactions to contact with natural bodies of water may contribute to panic reactions in watercraft accidents.
