Pets Aboard: Nav Skye Oscar Is a Bi-Directional Dog


Her name is Skye Oscar Delgado; she is a West Highland Terrier. She works as assistant navigator aboard Antares, a Mariner 42 trawler based in Southport, North Carolina. "Because we are on the ICW, she knows east and west well but not north and south, so we fall back on our Raymarine E120s when we need to know where we are," says Capt. Bob Fuller.

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