No one down below.
No one in cockpit.
No one on deck.

You're a dog that can sail a boat, you have strange powers as it is.

Nope, Catalina 25 don't have a transom that has any place for toes aft of the rail.

David, It is clear what is going on as the reflection in your compass
tells it all, but don't worry I won't give you up...or is that the

You are either standing up in the dink you are towing or hanging off the stern rail. No telephoto.
Or you are still tied to the dock.
