Dogs and Boats is today’s topic. Of course everyone feels sorry for neglected dogs shown on TV. Makes you just want to go out and adopt them. Well what about neglected boats. I feel that boats have souls and can get mad at you for neglecting them and then costing you a large repair bill instead of a vet bill. We are sitting next to a 47’ neglected Sea Ray named Captain Romeo. It’s almost new. But the lines are frayed and we are having a really strong wind storm from the famous cold front. Liquid Therapy is tied up correctly and has room to swing about. Poor Captain Romeo looks as though it would bash into the concrete dock behind it. No one has visited the boat since we have been here in Miami and the boat is a NY, NY boat. It’s kind of like a dog tied up on a rope with the owner not caring for the animal.

I walked over and looked at the forward spring line. It’s frayed badly. Should I adjust it? Replace it? Kind of like should I throw the dog tied up some food? No, the liability would be hell if the boat hit the dock AFTER I AFFECTIONALLY TRIED TO PROTECT IT. ($750,000 $800,000) I will have a talk with the dock master tomorrow. Kind of like complaining to the animal officers about a neglected animal.

Snooping around on my WIFI I have discovered Captain Romeo has a WIFI network called ipCptRomeo. The network icon looks like it is an iPhone with sharing turned on. So, the guy leaves his iPhone on his beautiful boat and that’s ok too.

Anyhow, anyone can buy a boat or dog. Abuse the dog and you go to jail. Abuse a boat and I guess it’s insurance abuse. But a boat has a soul and will get you back. It will!!
Today’s picture is the port bow line of Captain Romeo, also coming apart.
