That's why I use these things:


The only way I can afford boats is to not own a car, and this carries one child and a week's groceries, or two sailbags...

Just be careful with the cargo net, as some of it's big eniugh for small arms and legs to get tangled in. Other than that, best bet is probably the mesh across the door.

Arms and legs are not really a problem. If they were you wouldn't be able to buy baby gates, they would have to be baby doors. Its things like heads and necks that you have to worry about.

Arms and legs can be a problem on a monohull...if the kid gets tangled up and the boat heels suddenly, the kid could get seriously injured..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
