Agreed it's a small risk! Maybe a good solution is to go with the strapped in chair / seat / buggy and if it does start to look bad, hold him (he really likes it when it's rough and is generally quite happy sitting on someone at that point).

Now if only I did have fender baskets!

Or even better: http://www.jollyjumper.com/ Little bugger would get a hell of a ride!

When my kids were really little, we just wedged them between us on the 2 man jockey. As they got a bit older, they progressed to "second helmsmen" position.. in front of me, helping to steer.

As they got older they progressed to riding on the tubes, but as often as not, would just curl up on the deck in a secure corner someplace... And once they became teens and wanted as little as possible to do with parents (but still liked the boat) we would tow them 75' behind on a tube. My oldest once dragged for 23 miles that way!

Yes that would be the ideal situation (to have them wedged between us) but unfortunately the single jockey console and twin seats arrangement make that impossible.

Guess we'll just play around a bit and see what work. Youngest will prob be strapped into a car seat with toddler free to roam, maybe on a lead!

Cheers for all the replies guys.
