Pooches Onboard

Last time we published a picture of a cute doggie in a life jacket (my pup btw) and we received a couple of great boating canine pics in return.

Already an enthusiastic photo contributor (thanks!) Mike Johnson of the Oakville Power and Sail Squadron sent along a great shot of Lacy, his son Marcus’ boat-friendly Nova Scotia duck toller at Wilson NY, cheeseburger in paradise party aboard the family’s Silverton 38X.

Brody PoochAnd Dean Gresko of the Thunder Bay Yacht Club sent in this, “ Here’s a photo of our Golden Retriever, Brody, on board our Beneteau Swift Trawler 50 at Thompson Island on Lake Superior near Thunder Bay last summer. He loves the swimming and watching the ducks quack at him. Lol”

Here are the PotW rules – the photos must be taken from or near a boat. They don’t have to be pet shots, but a dog on the boat is always a winner! They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send the to us via CYonboard@kerrwil.com and put Photo in the subject line.

We’ll publish yours in the next issue!!

As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
