    Question Need advice on this topic....

    Interesting to see this topic this morning.
    My wife wants a child, shes 33 I'm 40 she(we) has a 12 year
    old daughter from previous. Spent the whole weekend
    kicking this one around. I cant help to think about being
    60 before the kid gets out of high school. And our 100hr
    per year boating gone for good, no more trips, weekends away
    etc. Cant take a baby in a 27 fountain. Can you tell I was single for 15 years before we got married.(april 01)
    Need help and advice from the experts. thanks

    All I can say is stay tuned. I got 40 hours in with a pregnant wife last year and also snuck in a trip to France in late October. Your time is what you make of it. We have to loves in the boating world: speed and the water. Integrate the baby into your boating life. Maybe the first year isn't a good one to have the baby on your Fountain (I have a 22' Pachanga) but hopefully not much thereafter. If your primary love is the water do an express cruiser 'til you can rejoin the spped ranks again. There are plenty of time that I wish I had a big express with a/c and hot water and room for 6-8 of my friends, but that speed bug has me bad. I'll give it up for a while but I'll be back in a bigger faster boat when I return.
    I'm dealing with that old man and college thing as well. I'll be 51 when she get there. Oh well that is the way the ball bounces. As long as I can get to the water and sneak a trip in to Europe once a year I'll be fine!!
    It all comes down to sacrifices and what and how far you are willing to go. Might be the best thing you ever did.......
    Good Luck,

    Thanks ken and chris..

    I was a little misleading, didn't want to get into any moral issues
    shes 6 wks (slip) and I'm scared. Its all up to me and too much pressure. I've taken alot of risks in business etc. but none that
    last a lifetime. Planned on early retirement, travel, move to fla. and boat all the time. And now...a new plan? Just wonder how everyone does it.
    Congratulations to all of the new parents reading this thanks again. John

    Congrats, we have 2 boys, 3 1/2 & 2 yrs. old and another one due on 4/03. We just found out that he is another little boy. "Me and the Boys" would look great on the back of a TopGun but I can't unload my cat. Again, congrats.

    Don't be scared. We all were , and needlessly for the most part
    If life hands you a bunch of lemons...make lemonade
    That's why they make tiny pfd's and 9 gazillion sunblock
    You may just have to slow down a bit for a while. Once they learn to hang on it'll be "FASTER DADDY FASTER" . Then a little older and THEY want to drive

    Mines getting married June 14,2003...Seem like he was born last week
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    Godblessya, Bro!!!

    First of all, it takes a REAL man to make a girl (even though you had the pattern right there in fron of you). I've got two...

    You will never experience anything so challenging or rewarding!!!

    Raising your kids is the most important job of your life.

    More people in this world need to remember that..I trust you will.

    Here's to your best CHristmas yet!!!
