Pets Aboard: Hawser Is Harley's Window on the Outside World


Harley the cairn terrier looks through a hawser of the motor vessel Cutter Murrell, a 62-year-old Irish-built pilot cutter converted into a liveaboard yacht. Harley's human companions are Dirk and Lydia Vergauwen of Antwerp in Belgium. Harley is six and has lived aboard since he was a puppy.

Send pictures of your dog or cat to, and we’ll put him or her on display like Harley. 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!
