We have a 3 year old and a 6 year old. We just bought our first boat, Catalina 36. We will be doing mostly daysailing and some weekend cruising.
We would like to know what safety measures we should take?

I''d suggest:
1. full netting on lifelines, bow to stern and on bow and stern pulpits
2. Kids under 16 always wear a lifjacket
3. Anone who can''t tread water swim, require a tether when not in the cabin, use jacklines as for offshore use.

Can''t be too careful with the little ones...

Good luck.
