I have a 16ft bowrider which I've owned for 6 years but haven't ridden for a while, since we had our first child this year. We've been lending the boat to friends in the meanwhile, to keep it happy, but we'd like to take our daughter on her first ride next week. She's 6 months old and has very firm back muscles (she can sit up straight). We don't plan on doing anything more than cruising real slow on the Intracoastal (Fort Lauderdale), avoiding rough areas like the port.
a) Can other parents of similar aged children provide tips (yes, even "are you nuts? Don't do it!!!" )
b) Do they make life vests that small?
I don't mind waiting a little longer, it's just that my sis-in-law's visiting next week so we're looking for some creative entertainment options, in our entertainment-starved city.
Thanks in advance.
