Just this last weekend, at our lake, a couple in a bowrider was busy trying to get their daughter up on skis. Dad's driving, mom is watching/coaching/encouraging, and the other kids are in the bow. One of those kids decides to hang off of the bow in an attempt to touch the water with his hand while the boat is in gear moving forward. I don't think either parent noticed. The boy finally pulled himself back in the boat.

Scenes like that make me glad that we had a closed bow while the kids were young.
