You have no role to play in a christening, I'm sure the Ribnet fraternity would agree!!!
what the hell are you talking about?! ive been out on my boat more since being a dad than i ever did even before i got married, and thats no lie. as long as you are fair then there should never be a problem when it comes to playing out. get them out on the water as young as possible too

My young 'un was on the boat from being about 12 months old. She did her first trip up the sound of Mull at 18months. She was catching & gutting mackerel at 5, diving for flatties & scallops at 12. Trekked across Costa Rica at 16. She's now a confident outgoing 23 year old & she's fazed by nowt. Character building; start 'em as early as you can & you'll not go far wrong.
