Yes, because it's the KIDS who you should consult about risk.

But I think you bring up a good point. For teens, I'd expect the risks to be less on a cruising boat.

Not because they're on a boat, but because they're being supervised.

Is that meant to be tongue in cheek?

It's called sarcasm. Teens have a documented higher tolerance for risk.

Example:

Husband: "Honey, should I drive the four wheeler over the cliff?"
Wife: "Let's ask the kids."

Kids: "YES!"

If everyone drives their four wheeler off the cliff, does that mean you should too? See Lemming migrations.

This thread is staggering into the realms of personal attacks and stubborn opinions at the speed of a startled slug. So we are putting it out of it's misery. The thread is now closed.
