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 editor@passagemaker.com, 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!
