Re: First boat for small 9 yr old girl?

I taught both of my boys around age 8 in an El Toro. Yes, you can swamp an El Toro but I don't recall either of my boys swamping it. I do recall some smart ass adults after watching my boys sail the El Toro jumping in and swamping it though. I would not hesitate to start my granddaughter of in an El Toro. I love her way to much to shove her off in a Pudgy. Where is the dignity in a boat that looks like a suppository? The El Toro, with a small kid as crew, can really scoot.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
