    that's a good idea, especially with my crew (5 sons, 2 daughters)! What do you keep onboard for sterilization?

    I have a skin cleanser call Shur-Clens and a few small vials of sterile saline. if you know anyone in the medical field they can get it for you pretty easily- if not a mild liquid soap with plenty of rinse would work; make sure your tetanus shot is up to date!

    Ouch on the bump Looks like all had a good time. Great to see.

    I could never figure out why some people feel they need to sell there boat when they have kids? We've always had a boat since I was born. Now with my family, its just good clean fun and a great way to stay involved with your kids.

    That first year with an infant (especially the first one) can be tricky and the wife is usually scared to leave the house at all. Plus, the infant life vests aren't all that comfortable. But, it only gets better from there. It really is a temporary situation.

    Me either. GREAT family activity!!! My wife wasn't on a lake until she met me, and we had our first son out there before he was a couple weeks old! I lived on a lake my whole life, until I had to move out on my own ! lol. We lived a couple minutes from the launch until we moved here to SC, and now we're 35 minutes away. Tell ya what, it is HARD having ot trailer a boat like that after living your whole life being able to just walk down and drop the hoist...

    Definilty early for Wisconsin! I just picked up my Moomba from Lauderdale Lakes Marina and there were still guys ice fishing in March, and this is on the Chicago border!

    My 1st 3 were all summer babies, so it wasn't a big deal. the last 4 have been born in Jan. & Feb., so they have to wait a little while, but not too long now that we're in the sunny south

    Excellent pics!!! I can not wait to get out on the water.

    As to the head gash, put all of those kids in helmets!!! It would suprise you how many people crash wakeboarding and get hit by the board. Behind my boat NOBODY wakeboards or Knee boards without a helmet. I did a wake jump a couple yares back and cased the other wake on the knee board and the nose smahed me in the head and left a huge goose egg!!

    Hey I bought my boat from Lauderdale, so did Deerfield, small world. The kid I'm talking about my 10 yr old was born in Jan.
