Ideas to get her on board to sailing/LA would be:

1) Take a date night and see if you can go with some other people for a sail.

2) Find friends that have baots and are of similar mindsets (want to LA also).

3) Charter a boat for a week in the islands WITHOUT the kids.

4) Go to boat shows and just walk around.

5) Order the magazines and see if she will read some. THere are also some good books.

6) Once she is catching on to the idea, charter a boat in the islands WITH the kids.

7) When you do get her onboard, take care of her and make her feel comfortable. You are already sold on the idea. It is now up to you to make her feel comfortable with it.
