Hawse Holes

In harmony with her size, Red Head has numerous nice, large hawse holes. If you don't happen to be familiar with boats and don't know what a hawse hole is, the Champman Piloting book defines them as "an opening in the hull, through which mooring lines run." Like most boaters, we use ours for hoses and electrical cords and anything else we need to bring onboard.

Since we've been in New Bern, NC at the Galley Stores and Marina, the kids have discovered another use for hawse holes. Many of them are at just the right spot for some cute faces to look out. Dee Dee can spy on what's happening on the dock.

Dylan thinks he should get a peek as well.

There's some pretty cool things to see out there, so they both want to take a look.

Unfortunately, even Red Head's rather large hawse holes have trouble handling both of those snoots at the same time.

Guess it's time to head back to the side door and see what kind of attention they can rustle up. After all, who could resist those faces?
