Keith’s advice on outboard and rudder is extremely sound (as one who has a “friend” who took chunks out of the rudder once upon a time)…..my friend often removes the rudder completely rather than risk a repeat (eg if rudder not down fully). This leaves the issue of stretching back over the locker to reach the outboard tiller……..for comfort he slips a length of plastic pipe over the handle to make a metre long extension which is very comfortable.
As for my advice on sailing and children it is very much assuming another adult on board to help the kids with their positioning on the seats while you are at the helm. Good luck whatever
