Thanks for the info about the kid's harness. My wife and I have a new boat and a baby on the way. The boat gets here before the baby, but we've got our work ahead of us. Getting the boat is one way for us to spend more time together as a family, cruising. I see it as having fewer "real life" distractions so we can just have fun at our own place scoping out the world and all it has to offer us.
I wish you luck with the bringing together thing while they are young. In our case it seems to pull us apart more then bring together as having an older boat it needs a fair amount of love and that is hard to do when you have a little one around as fiberglass, paint, tools, ect are not really great for them at that age. Once you get out on the water that may be a different experience!
Now that my youngest is 4 I'm thinking its going to be better this year but still makes it hard to get boat projects done.
