Just so you know, not all days in the tropics are sunny and carefree. This is Dooley the Disgusted, on the TI, just coming out the far side of a short but concentrated little squall.



The rain was running down the main, and falling right on his head. But during the worst of the squall we were trimmed differently, and that spot where he's sitting was the driest spot on the boat. He refused to give it up, dripping rain and all.

He loves boats. He likes the TI, and prefers a starboard tack or beam reach in something less than 18 kts. He just doesn't care for rain. He really hates anything that looks like it might contain any of the ingredients for thunder.

glad you got him a PFD - Mocha was on her way over to whack you on the noodle with her bone after watching the first couple of vids without him wearing one.

... Im sure he was much more happy to be out on the boat with you - even in the rain ... than being home alone wondering how many weeks it'll be until you return

De does not look very impressed at all. Maybe you need a dodger for him...
