Sailing Dog: You know I love you and I really respect your opinions. But on this one ya got it all wrong. Have you sailed with kids? Getting them to sit still or be in a safe plan works great on paper not in the real world. They are squirrels for God's sakes! lol.

I never really expected them to sit still—even I am not that unrealistic, having two nephews (3 & 5)...but they are perfectly capable of following basic rules to help keep them safe. A lot of it depends on the design and layout of the boat.

One of my friends used a portable playpen to keep their two year old in a safe place on their sailboat.

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.
