DescriptionRiparian landowners of the New York's Great Lakes (NYGL) are reportedly in conflict with some motorboat and personal watercraft (PWC) use. Goal interference theory was used to explain landowners' perceived conflict caused by motorboat and PWC use. A study conducted in the NYGL area surveyed the riparian landowners' perceived conflict and problems caused by motorboat and PWC use. Data were collected from six sites: Alexandria Bay, Sandy Pond, Sodus Bay, Olcott Harbor, N. Niagara River, and Handford Bay. Study results showed three of Jacob and Schreyer's four conflict dimensions were determinants of landowners' perceived conflict. Only the resource specificity dimension was not statistically significant in predicting landowners' perceived conflict.
