Tom’s Tips about Family Boat Projects

  1. If a family works together to maintain a boat it can promote better understanding of boating, better safety on the water, better sense of responsibility, and a feeling of pride and self reliance.
  2. It may take skill, understanding, patience, time and tolerance on the part of parents to get their kids interested in working as a family on boat projects, and to maintain that interest. But it’s worth all of this and more.
  3.  Pick jobs that the family member can understand, that he or she is able to do, that aren’t intimidating, that don’t take an inordinate amount of time to complete, and that have obvious immediate results which have a clear effect on the boat or boating.
  4. Take time to explain and teach.
  5. Be patient.
  6. Celebrate the successes.
  7. Take care that the person doesn’t feel intimidated and isn’t scolded or put under pressure if the job doesn’t turn out right.
