it is amazing, I spent ALOT of time on boats as a kid. never wore PFD and never had rules.. It is amazing how things change.. I spent some time thinking of the almosts and just trying to approach this in a as much a common snese way while keeping it enjoyable. Those are the things I thought of. I don't know if they offically proper but they seem to work rather well thus far.. Just sharing my ideas and thoughts in attempt to help others.... I do see kids crawling wround boats in ways that makes me cringe.. It is also hard to tell a good friends kids stearnly over and over BUT it is important and another reinforcement to our own...Bear I really like the idea of hitting the deck if they feel unstable, I will be implementing it this year. As far as the foot always planted they know this every time was on the boat as it is always drilled in their head.
