My parents will and do readily recommend raising babies and young children onboard. It sounds like you're on top of the health thing. Teach the little tyke to swim before s/he can walk and you'll be in business.
Thanks Craig!

Now let me try and guess what anchor you would recommend as being proven best for encouraging infants to sleep soundly while at anchor
