Pets Aboard: Indy Dons His Dress Whites for ICW Cruise


Indy's humans are avid PassageMaker readers, so they couldn't help but play dress-up with the little guy for Pets Aboard Weekend. Indy is a Maltese mix rescued from a shelter by Dorothy and Steve Schlamp. "And he rescued us right back," they say. In this photo Indy is transiting the Intracoastal Waterway through Juno Beach, Florida, aboard Seas The Day, a 23 Caravelle center console.

Remember, every Friday afternoon (or Saturday morning when we get behind) begins Pets Aboard Weekend here at, but we need your help to keep it going.


Send pictures of your dog or cat to, and we’ll put him or her on display like Indy. Ideally you will include the names of the human companions, the make, model and name of boat, homeport, and a paragraph that provides context for the image or describes what makes your pet special. If you’ve got the image in high-resolution, that would allow us to publish it in the magazine, or a calendar…We just don’t know where this will lead yet, but it’s fun.

Though not exactly a contest, the editors are thinking of providing some kind of material reward to anyone who sends a truly striking image. Cute counts!
