Pets Aboard: A Yankee Anchor Baby (and Son of a Gun) Named Herreschoff


This is Herreshoff, sleeping on our foredeck extra anchor. He allows us aboard his 48 Hatteras LRC Black Powder, which he keeps at East Greenwich Yacht Club in Rhode Island. He is named after the boat builder and one of our cannons. He only allows Jackie Champagne and Bill Schlageter aboard to honor colors and feed him!

Does Capt. H. insist on his full name, we wonder, or does he go by "Herri" or "Schoff" for short?

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 Schoff. 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!
