What extra safety measures did you take?  Which PFDs, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc. work the best for a newborn?  Did you take the car seat onto the boat?  Are there any baby seats that are safe  and…Continue

It is a bit big on her, but it worked...the Baby pfd by Kent

This is the one we ordered. We don't know how she'll like it yet, but once she joins us and we try it out, we'll be sure to let you know.

Anyone find a semi-comfortable pfd for an infant under 30 lbs ? Ousr son is 9months old and starts screaming as soon as the life vest goes on. The problem seems to be the excessive thickness of the chest area (which, I'm sure, is to keep him floating face up)

my baby was a week old... and loved sleeping in the vegtable hammock.... and then we got bigger hammocks.. hung below out of the sun.... just cover them all up with light clothing... wonder if they make baby clothes with the UV protection now... or buy the fabric.

"Well Bob as luck would have it, my boat does not have the optional macerator pump for holding tank pump out. There is a black switch under the sink but it is for the shower sump drain. Thanks again for the reply."

"We use original 44 pound plow that came with boat. Added 100ft 3/8 ht chain in 2010. This setup has proven very reliable and we have not drug since 2010. This set up has held in numerous weather systems with high winds from Martha's Vinyard Ma…"

Mike Brown replied to GaryG's discussion Anchor upgrade in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We have a 55lb Rocna on our 43 and it fits just fine, sets quickly 99% of the time and holds like a rock. I use a double line bridle made up of 5/8" 3 strand and a chain gripper plate. On those times where it doesn't set immediately I just…"

"We upgraded from a Bruce 40lb anchor to a Manson 60 lb anchor on our B-40 as well as went all chain instead of rope to chain rode. The anchor fit perfectly on the roller. One suggestion is to put an inline swivel on the anchor and have a boat hook…"
