Well, I certainly would not count myself as a rich parent, but if my two lads show any inclination, I will do the same! The alternative may be how I (mis) spent my youth, two wheels and an engine Now it may be one thing for yourself, but to contemplate YOUR kids doing what you used to get up to

I am not rich but having only one daughter she does tend to get what she wants within reason , like to encourage her in any of the sports she does 3 horses as well they are expensive rather this than walking the streets with her mates

I'm just comparing it to my brother whi has just turned 16, he would love a RIB but has saved his own money up and bought a small SIB, he enjoyed that and sold them on making a bit of money, he now has a 4.6m SIB and a 25hp outboard.
I think its more to do with knowing the value of something rather than just been given it.

When I was 13 my dad bought a 13ft dorey with a 30hp yam. He had a Fairline Sunfury and I'd follow him to Herm with my younger brother (if he was fully loaded he'd follow me!!). We weren't rich at all, he was a self-employed boatbuilder that specialized in major repairs and rebuilds so he was always in the right place for a bargain!

Looking after the boat was my responsibility, and if I screwed up or messed around we wern't allowed to use it. I learnt a hell of a lot, both about respecting things and boathandling & seamanship.

I personally don't believe in buying kids what they want when they want... I'm 27 now and I still have a few mates that rely on mummy and daddy, and although they're decent blokes (they have to be or I wouldn't be friends with them!) they have no real concept of the value of anything.

That little RIB does look ideal though if you're going to get her something

I was started off that way too! 'Abandoned' in the harbour at 4 years old in a rubber dinghy with a pair of oars. It worked, I made it back!

This is the same man that taught me to swim by throwing me off the back of the boat at 3 years old, that worked too!

My dad rules haha
