Recently our beloved Cairn Terrier, Captain Morgan, crossed the bar one final time. Our family is so grateful to have enjoyed 15 years with him on-board our Kadey-Krogen 39′, “Brut.” Captain Morgan traveled upwards of 10,000 miles with us, whether we were headed to San Francisco or Puerto Vallarta. He was also our “Fish on!” sentinel as he would often loudly notify us of a strike when he heard the fishing reel sing! Captain Morgan was a great shipmate and one that will, undoubtedly, never be forgotten. I’m sure that dog lovers, especially those who also include their canine friends in their ocean travels, can appreciate the loss we feel. Here’s to warm waters, and calm seas.
As I sit down at my office desk on this rainy day, looking out on a calm San
Francisco Bay, I am reflecting on the many years of both commercial and
recreational boating that I have enjoyed.
Starting with Submarine School in the early 60’s, Mate and Master of
Oceanic Research Vessels, Commercial fishing for fifteen years and most
enjoyably the last 15 years of owning our Kadey-Krogen 39 Brut and
cruising to many destinations.
What can I bring to the table using these experiences to assist and encourage
others to throw off the dock lines and start living their dreams?
In the following Blogs I will attempt to shed light on simple and complicated
Tasks that will enhance boater’s safety and enjoyment of the yachting world
whether it is cruising close to home or to far away ports.
