Lucky Crew

RED HEAD finally is back in the water and the whole crew couldn’t be happier.  It was a trying time for Mom and Dad, while Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora did just fine. Mom found a nice long walk that she and Dee Dee took each morning.

Dylan and Dora still made it to the dog park every morning. What fun!

Dylan has been on a new regimen of CBD oil and it seems to have put a spring in his step. 

Alas, the dog park is now just a memory but we’re pretty sure we know what Dora dreams about.

Haul Out Day...


Every year or so RED HEAD needs to be hauled out to have her bottom scraped and paint. It’s never a good day for any of the crew. This week she was pulled at Thunderbolt Marine  

The hard part is figuring out what to do with the kids. Fortunately, Thunderbolt Marina had an enclosed gazebo with seating. As a bonus, it was right across from the haul out well, so Mom and the kids could watch the whole thing. 

It was a long, boring day. The kids missed their morning walks and dog park romps, but still handled it pretty well. Dee Dee claimed a comfy chair.

Dora was cold, so Mom made due with a towel.

Of course, Dylan just laid wherever he could.

For the next 1-2 weeks, the crew will be living on the hard. The yard setup stairs and Dad gives Dylan some extra help when needed. We’ll all be glad to be afloat again - mom’s hoping sooner rather than later. 🤞

After months of being tied to the docks at Isle of Hope Marina, the RED HEAD crew finally threw off the lines and set out on their next big adventure. Well, maybe just an adventure. Actually, a kinda small adventure. Oh, alright, they tootled 5 miles down the river to Thunderbolt Marine where RED HEAD is scheduled to be hauled out for bottom paint, etc., etc.

But we were underway! And Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora saw dolphins. Lots of dolphins. 

Dylan and Dee Dee took their dolphin watch very seriously.

Dora was a little less focused.

She did eventually help out.

The crew is happy to be tied up and settling in. Mom and Dad have retrieved their rental car, and unbeknownst to Dora, Dad is planning to take her to the dog park this afternoon. 🤫 It’s a secret.
