Re: Kid overboad plan
Hylyte - You are thinking rationally and making perfect sense. You are not thinking like a momma bear whose cub is in danger. The insticnt is to protect the cub at all costs. This is very hard to overcome. I agree, keeping the kid on the boat is the best solution. However, not being prepared for what will happen if/when the kid goes over is irresponsible. Even if that includes dealing with two people overboard. Not everyone will be rational in an emergency and assuming they will can be dangerous. We've all heard it before... prepare for the worst, hope for the best.
