boats for kids

If you are looking to find used cheap boats, then you really need to look into boats that are used by other programs so you could trade boats, parts, etc as needed. I agree with the other fella, prams, sunfish are best for little ones....then have them move up to 420's so they have the experience with a head sail. I'll never forget meeting a sailing instructor at a daycamp who had never sailed a boat with a headsail....(you're kidding right)no. Check out university sailing programs...they always have old 420's or 470's lying about. And if you are off the beach....I always highly recommend hobie's!!
