When they join us, my daughter and her S/O actually enjoy sleeping in their private V-berth while we shove off at 6:00. They usually come out in a couple hours and treat my wife and I to some exotic, mid-morning brunch - they both have professional cooking experience . . . one of the perks of being the Captain & First Mate.
Sounds like a great deal. While my kids might like to try some breakfast contribution, at 8 & 11 our breakfast tastes have not yet converged.
This season I will again try pitching that sleeping on the boat would allow them a couple of extra hours of sleep as they can continue to snooze as we set off. After a long winter, I am looking forward to having these kinds of "problems."
