We put netting around the bunk with a brumel hook so it was one handed to get them in or out. In rough weather, if we needed a bit of time to reef or change jibs or drive a tricky channel, a handful of cherrio's tossed into the bunk thru the netting would keep them busy for a half hour or so...leave them with some books, and they will make your life miserable trying to keep up with getting them enough new ones...'when is England going to tie up to us again?' their world view will be changed forever.
Really, have fun!
