"Dog Talking"

I've decided to rename my boat "Dog Talking." Because . . . when I'm out alone or with female crew, male boaters look at me/us with this expression on their faces as if their dog had just started talking to them.

The first 5 times! I came into the Bay, turned up into the wind, and started taking down my hanked on jib either the Coast Guard or Marina Police boat was there within a minute. They never came over to talk to me, just watched for less than a minute and went away. That doesn't happen any more, tho.

Getting in and out of the slip is always a challenge. My boat is a 31', heavy displacement, modified full keel sloop, with very little steerage at slow speed. The marinas seems to be parking structures built for Honda's and I'm trying to park a '58 Buick . . . Getting a slip with more backing room has been a godsend!

Hope to see you all out there, single handing or with crew!
