Also on Lake Champlain, and I have found often the wave size doesn't always correlate to the wind. I have had 4' waves with <15 knot winds - especially if you are out in the middle and there is that 100 mile fetch north to south!
I'd add an additional step for people. We have three kids also involves "kids in the cabin!!" while the adults run the drill.
I am anticipating soon that our 9 year old can start being the spotter though...
