Re: 2nd and 3rd generation cruisers?

We took our two kids cruising twice for three years each time. First when they were toddlers, they loved it. Then again as young teens, our daughter hated it then.
But when she turned 23 she went and bought an old Freedom 40 and has now cruised from Toronto (where she bought the boat) to the Florida Keys and now up to Rhode Island for the winter (and work) with plans for Mexico next year. She is loving it now.
