Re: Baby seat in cockpit

I've seen people put them under the dodger to avoid splashes. I'm not sure that I'd do that because it decreases visibility and increases the motion the baby would feel. I agree with Joe's idea of using a bungee cord to attach the car seat. If the cockpit is a decent size, you could always add a couple pad eyes and use the bungee to attach the seat that way (though I'd probably through-bolt those and put some kind of backing plate on it, given the precious cargo).
