It's the only way to get grand kids. A true joy. Love teaching them boating. 3 and 5. Got them on the ski trainer this year.

Congrats. Don’t give up on this year so quickly. Our first was April 22 and we were on a houseboat early June. Trips will definitely be shorter.

The rewards of fatherhood outweigh anything IMO. Just use patience and accept the fact kids and their stuff require use up a lot of space and nothing happens quickly!

Boating with your family, teaching your kids water sports at an early age and have them growing up on the water is the BEST!

Congrats! Lake time doesn’t have to suffer. All depends on your parenting style. You can make boating a family activity and still get plenty of time on the water. That’s what I do with my boys. All 4 of them! Technically only two are mine but my nephews are with me on the water just as much so it’s like having 4!
