i was thinking the hammock would keep her safe from touching any hard areas or rolling off as well as help her to move with the boat... is that wrong thinking?

We used a board across the V berth to keep Chase from coming out. THe reality is that they do not really get tossed much from side to side. I doubt it will be much of an issue unless you are going offshore.

I would be concerned about a hammock being a choking or suffocation hazzard. Just my thoughts.

Here is a pic of my mom holding chase. Behind her you can see in the V berth and what we made to hold him in (looks like the side of a crib, but easily made with a drill press and purchaseing small dowels, secured in a 1X2 strip of oak). THis is a pic inside our previous boat, a C380

I am open to opinions on what can make it better.

There are 42 different threads about cruising with children... in total. Since 2000. The one with the most input is this one, discussing the advisability of having it as a separate forum.

Are the Sailnet forums searchable "in toto", or did you have to search each separate forum to find threads relating to children? From your post, it sounds like the latter. If users have to search each forum separately, having lots of separate forums makes it harder to find threads on a specific topic, not easier.

Paul...Just hit the new post button...It doesnt mater where people posted the question you will see it....The ONLY difficulty in having 10K different Subtopics is finding the right topic to start your new thread under...other then that its a moot point really.

As far as searching goes..You don't want to use the Forum search engine you want to use the Sailnet Specific Google one...It will find them all!

And Brian on that subject another forum I belong to has that option in the drop down box when you click on Search so you might look into that as well.....purdy please

Paul,

I know you are not happy about the thread, but be patient with me. It is the first of many changes. However, thre are more than 42 threads here that are kid related, I jsut grabbed a bunch of them that were easy targets and pulled them over. It was not my intention or interest to pull over all of them. It just seemed to make sense to pull over some of them.

I also want to consolidate some of the forums here to make it easier for others to navigate, including yourself. That was why I started the other thread on suggestions. Also, if the forum does not do well and get much traffic, I will move it back to general or something. Let's just call this fourm a beta test.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. Be patient with us.

Brian

Funny thing was that when he got irritated and wanted more attention, he would start grabbing his toys and ejecting them out of his berth. A few of them left some nice little marks in the teak/holly floor - which are undoubtedly still there to this day!!
