Hi - this is not exactly on point, but just a warning of possible future events!
We had friends who owned a Swan 43 - the one with a REAL steep set of stairs - who had a toddler onboard.
They had made a "pen" for her to roam around in while under away and at dock
Unfortunately, she quickly learned how to more than "toddle" - she learned how to escape from the pen and to climb the stairs and get out into the cockpit.
Reason for the attraction to the cockpit was the autopilot
- when you made a course correction it made a "beep" sound.
The toddler (a little girl) was totally in love with the beep sound and learned by watching which button to push to make the sound.
They had some funny
stories of the boat
zooming 20-degrees off course when she pushed the button when they were not looking, as well as being awakened at the dock
to the sound of multiple "beeps".
learn faster than you think.....
