Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)

I was just looking for someone to post a reply for me to look at. Six berths seems like a lot of boat? Could you try something like a boat that sleeps 4 and put two of the crew up out on deck laid out on the seats? The captian on the deck kids in the cabin. Backpacker gear has come a long way in the last few years hammocks hung above deck below the boom and from the forstay back to the mast maybe? Innovation may be your salvation ? The kids will start to go in many directions soon before you know it. Friends will have them over and you may able to camp after you had a house full of your boys best buddies.. . I have 3 so you have been blessed with one more than me. Enjoy them they grow fast !
