kids boats

Our 3 kids aged 19, 11 and 7, have a Rib between them.

We just bought a trailer kit from Extreme marine and thought we upload a picture for you guys of their pride and joy on it.

The boat proportions have not been squashed up by the picture resizing, it really is that short, but, the trailer s aren't normally that short. We have started converting the hitch section to being telescopic.

Short is easy fro the wife to tow and to store the boat in a garage. Council garages being about 6 quid a week makes it the cheapest secured undercover boat storage I could find.

enjoy the pics

Steve

Our little boy is going to start under sail.

Maybe I bought the dinghy a few years too early?

Couldn't you just put tubes round the outside of the buggy Richard?

Congratulations! When's the happy event going to be?

Our pram/pushchair is a Jane Slalom Pro with the Matrix car seat. Richard probably chose it because of its lightweight frame and groovy disc brake but it made my shortlist because the Matrix car seat has a proper 'lie flat' position for when the baby is first born but can be raised into a 'sitting' position as baby gets older. When we were looking, it was the only travel system that had an adaptable car seat; with all the others you had to buy a carry cot to enable the baby to lie flat.There is a separate pushchair part which Tom is almost ready to start using. It fits onto the same chassis so then you can leave the car seat part in situ in the car.

We bought ours from an independent nursery shop in Basingstoke but it is widely available from stores such as John Lewis and Mothercare, although we found the colour options are more limited in the chain stores. There are also lots of online stores which stock them but after lots of searching, the independent guy gave us the best deal.

You need to make sure it will fit in your car as the seatbelts in some cars aren't long enough for the Matrix car seat.

All the best to you and Ann-Marie.

Good choice - we went for the same, for very similar reasons. Ben is nearly 3 and it has served us well. Its off road capabilities have been tested too and it is pretty good even at running speed. I think everyone who has used has been impressed by it either off road, on road or from the childs perspective for sleeping, sitting etc in. My only criticism is it does take up a lot of space in the boot.
