Yeah, that's the kind of parental bonus you want, isn't it!!! And I am at a loss as to understand the downside to buying another boat??? (again tongue in cheek, I am buying a cat now, boat #2).
Back to the topic, I think a guided trip is a great idea. It would allow everyone to really try it, and get some basic information on paddling, and I don't think that's a waste. You never know what you'll get out of it, and you'll likely get something. But, it's a big price tag for a family, so I agree with TMTTR, make a Buzzard take you! It almost sounds like she's accidentally volunteering!
