Notice that she hasn't mentioned dinghies... I bet poor SVdistantstar is stuck in the inflatable dinghy... without even a blanket to his name. Also, I notice that SVLola says she lives on the big boat, but says nothing about where her poor husband lives... he's living on the dinghy and getting fed scraps from the kids's plates.

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.

Too True!

We owned two boats together with another couple for quite some time. When our boys were 15 and started complaining about having to spend 3 weeks cooped up with their parents in the summer, we kept them sailing by allowing them to take the smaller boat themselves while we parents took the larger cruiser (24 and 40 feet resp.)

We kept the food so that they didn't get TOO far away, and we met up at the end of each days run. We had more space (as teens they were taking up a lot of room) and they were able to invite friends, as all of them slept on the smaller boat. We rafted up at the end of each day.

The boys were already very good sailors, and their willingness to fly a spinnaker meant that our wives' traditional objections to flying the kite on the big boat went by the board (G).

It was probably the most memorable and enjoyable summer cruise that we all had together.

btw - Lola - love your avatar!

HaHaHaHa! The kids are good eaters and hardly leave anything on their plates unless they absolutely don't want it. We have a inflatable but he's deciding on a dinghy for me to use. For now, we call and meet up then commute with one which can be a pain sometimes. But he's still instructing me on dinghy docking lessons. I'm somewhat comfortable tying up along the boats, but docking by the dock I'm not so good.

Our daughter loves the boats. If you mention it to her, she gets all excited. If Mark goes for a run around the anchorage, she gets upset with him if he doesn't take her out. She stands on the boat screaming at him.
