Everbody had some sort of great ideas (I thought). And KenD - if you''re doing a circumnavigation, why put yourself in the need to winterize at all? Just "go where it''s warm" to kinda quote Jimmy...

Sailing with small children

To reply to Amshan, albeit a little late, but I''ve been moving and offline for a bit.

Dear ChristineB,

food.

I am not a nutritionist, by any means, and I do think that the right idea while coastal cruising is to find the "happy hour" with the best free goodies. Buy one beer and you are set for the night,...

Leave her ashore.

There are autoinflates that are incoporated into safety harnesses. They are very comfortable and are put on like a vest instead of "wrestled over the head".

Thank you so much, Mr. Kirk.

Sorry, had to respond.
