Re: Soon to be Cruiser with Kid

Thanks mate.

In terms of having her along it was great. She loved the rough passages, the motion would just put her to sleep. She had a comfy little berth with lee cloth and she was happy. She loved the feel of wind on her face, it would make her laugh and flap like crazy!

I agree, by about 9-10 months things got a little harder, she start moving alot quicker! My daughter enjoyed undoing stopper knots, hitting random buttons on the chartplotter and disengaging the auto pilot at the most inopportune times It's all cute to begin with.....but umm on a 2 day passage it gets old!

Friends always seemed to know when we had come into a marina, apparently the sounds of a 10 Month old shouting/singing/screaming and two grown adults singing"If your happy and you know it clap your hands" while trying to dock a boat gave us away.
