scove We are in the Exumas now (Staniel Cay today) but will cross to Palm Beach in a couple days then head up to Stuart. Looks like we'll just miss CD but maybe others are in the area? We've never been to Stuart so any suggestions would be great.

Cheers.

Boatinglifeaway Children, specially boys love to imagine adventures of pirates and islands, bring them games related to these subjects, play doh to build things and for sure the legos that are boat related. A lot of kids books about island adventures. Get them notebooks to write imaginary adventures of what they would catch fishing or about finding a treasure in a island or a treasure boat. Bring movies like goonies or movies that are related to ocean and island adventures.

scove Be sure to keep a lookout for the cat Day Dreamer. They are north of you now but should be heading south again in the fall.

scove Have you looked at this website?
Kids4Sail

We managed to find one other boat using this site this season. We found that most of the kid boats we me we just ran into along the way. Only a few had heard of this site. We found that most families are on rather short timeframes (as we are) and so just go out there and do it and see who they meet along the way.

We're heading north, where abouts are you now?

Still looking for kids

I'm still trying to find a forum where cruisers with kids can talk and share experiences and give suggestions on home schooling, etc. We are heading south with a just turned 13 year old girl and would love to find cruisers in similar circumstances

We're cruising the Caribbean with 3 boys

It doesn't look like the original question about cruising with 3 boys was answered.

My suggestion, try it and see if you can make it work. It worked well for us. We also met another boat with 3 girls this season. I'd say that in both cases there were great things as well as challenges. Each family is different. The stories of the Copelands' circumnavigation (Liza & Andy Copeland - Cruising Authors) gave us the courage to give it a try. And it worked! Let me know if you want to know more or have any other questions.
