Several years ago I met a family from South Africa who had been cruising with their kids since birth. They were then 8 and 11. The children were mature, kind, compasionate, confident yet were still "kids".
Boats are a great arena for teaching life!
Bringing up lifejackets, I find it interesting that most parents (like myself... I am a big advoacte) all use Mustangs. Crotch strap is an absolute. And yes... we have tested those.
