It wouldn't be so bad if she was in the water - at least then it would be more fun for my kids to come down with me. As it is now, I'd be too worried about them falling off an almost 10' high structure if they tried to move around!
Plus if it is in the water you can spend the night on board, so even if you are not going out you have a whole day to work on it. Not many yards will let you overnight and hotels get expensive!
