Smack, it just takes one to start that seed growing. You are lucky to have them so close, my daughter (an only child) grew up too fast and now lives in Boston area with her husband (a golf person, not a boat guy), and my 2 granddaughters, the youngest almost 2 and the oldest 3˝. The oldest loves sailing with granddad and sits, on many winter's day, in her house over looking her snow covered yard and draws pictures of sailing and sailboats.
When she was one I gave her a rocking dory instead of a rocking horse. She has grown into a boat person so far. My fingers are crossed.
