TB- That is a cool heaving handle/harness you put on the dog!

I'm not particularly anal about lines on the boat while sailing so long as they are functional in the way they are made up. However I will double check or redo dock lines everytime. The boat is my responsibility as the skipper and I make sure it is handled in a way I am at least comfortable with. When leaving the boat I just like to make sure she is put to bed in a way that makes her look good to the casual eye of passers by.
