2. Adult Supervision
Slippery pavement, lots of traffic, preoccupied drivers and precarious docks make for a dangerous place, so you really need a third adult to shepherd the kids to safe areas. Unattended kids will surely wander off, oblivious to danger, usually toward the water or courtesy docks. Have a supervising adult gather the kids at the top of the gangway, get them into life jackets, and wait until the boat is securely tied up before escorting them down the dock for departure. Once you return to the dock, reverse this procedure, waiting until the rig is off the ramp and in a make-ready area before you load the posse back into the tow vehicle.
