You will see me mention this a lot in Sailnet: I AM VERY EXCITED!! Most people have to leave their family behind to go cruising... ours are going with us!!! I have never run across this, in all my years of boating. Have you!!!?? (smile).
Cruisingdad,

For the last few years we use to see two large trawlers who travelled together in the Exumas, one was a Selene or an Alaskan (I think) and the other a large Grand Banks. On the Selene or Alaskan were Grandma and Grandpa and on the Grand Banks were Mom and Dad. Didn't see any young children though. Maybe the kids had to stay home and work!

For the uninsured types... do you guys fly a black anchor ball during the day when moored? Seems like making sure your boat is showing what it is supposed to would reduce some some of the hazards of getting hit at anchor.

It might help in the legal wrangling later on but, as one who has been hit at anchor in broad daylight, not once, but twice over the years, I have to say that nothing short of a twenty-four hour guard with a rpg will stop the idiots from coming at you.
