It is against the law to sit with your feet over the bow of the boat even when traveling in the canals. It is child endangerment to hold a baby or young child over the bow of the Boat while traveling through the water. It is also very very stupid. The law of physics should be noted. There no way the Boat can stop even at idle speed if that baby slips out of your hands The Boat will run over the baby before it stops. Very good chance the baby will be badly injured or worse. We seat
belt our children in vehicle So why would anyone do this to
a young child or baby in a boat? Please donít find out the hard way how stupid this is.
