MedSailor has found (expecting) new crew!!!!!

If you saw S/V Fairhaven rocking at anchor about 3 months ago, we appreciate your not coming over and saying "hi!".

The better half of MedSailor is expecting! (This will be our first if you don't count our cat "Demon".) We're 3 months along and so far everything on ultrasound and otherwise looks good. The wife is doing well, none of that morning-seasickness stuff so far and she's still doing competative swimming though the "parasite" seems to have sucked a couple seconds of her nationally competative time. (Did I mention how cool my wife is?)

For those sailing with little crew, please pour fourth your wisdom. Lifejackets at all times, harnesses at all times, or lash them to the mast? (We have a ketch so we could potentially have 2 kids...) How many months untill they can do an ocean watch at the helm while we sleep?

Awesome news.... some leave, some arrive.

If this is your first child you're in for an adventure, your child is in for a special one given your lifestyle... and if it goes well, there are a few 3 masted schooners out there!

Congratulations! Awesome new times ahead.

As far as advice, well, it won't be long before they run up and down the deck faster and with more balance than you, trust me, I see it every time I go out.
Lashing them to the mast is a short term solution and could backfire because soon they will learn to tie you two up and take the boat wherever THEY want to go.
Oh and my favorite way to deal with bad behavior is to put a big hook through their belt loops, tie a long 1/8" line to it and toss them over the stern and troll for a while.
Two good things will happen: Either they learn their lesson and never ever do whatever they did ever again, or you get to eat a lot of fish for a while.
Win-Win situation

Congratulations again!

Well, too late for my wisdom The first 8 years of raising our two daughters was in a very small 2 bedroom 1 bath house, your boat may be bigger. You might be interested in the Bumfuzzles:

bumfuzzle | living, sailing, procreating

They are raising 2 small children on their boat, most of the time. Best wishes to you and the new addition.
