My Pet PFD
The admiral is concerned about safety at sea for the entire crew, so I sport my yellow
personal flotation device (PFD) whenever we go out for a sail. I'm a pretty good swimmer, but there are some awful
big fish in that ocean and I don't want to make a tasty meal for one of them.
isn't much for me to do while we're under way. I spend most of my time in the cockpit, stationed between
the winch and the dodger. It's a good shady spot to snooze while I'm off duty. Luckily I don't suffer from
motion sickness, and I've gotten accustom to the sound of the water rushing past the hull. I'm not very fond
of the engine noise, but it seems that neither Don nor Diana is either - because they don't seem
to like to turn it on very often.
