When you are in a boat with kids, you need as many things as possible to entertain. Preferably as small as possible. One that we took to the BVI last year was a GoPro camera. It’s robust, waterproof and you can wear it on your head!
We were going to Burlington we made it half way there and then our engine broke and it started to get water in it and then we called the coast guard and they towed us in to the harbor.
So our O’Day 28 had a little bit of an accident. Go google “sailboat I89” and you’ll find out what happened. After much looking, we have tracked down a great O’Day 322. A few years newer, and more room for us.
So I know that my children are the light of my life and all that and I’d hate to lose them, but jeez, safety harnesses for children are really expensive! I wonder if people ever make their own. I’ll have to look into that.
Where to start? We sail, in a small boat, and are not that good at it. We are a family of four. Four boys, all under the mental age of twenty. We put life on hold for a year to go sailing around the Caribbean.
