I grabbed her and bumped reverse at idle to get us closer to the dock. I set a wet kitty on the dock and apologized for knocking her off. She sat there looking at me as if she wanted to say," Is that all you gotta say? Well up yours buddy." That cat still will not come around me if I'm down at the dock.
Thanks... for the tip on cats!


I'm allergic to em... I mean sniffles, runny nose, sneezing type allergy. And, they seem to gravitate toward me. Knowing "Cat-Nature"... they probably like seeing me suffer. Ya know; sorta like they'd do to a big mouse!

One of the marina neighbours has a big magnet on a line,I`ve seen it used to retrieve a set of vicegrips. I don`t think it would pick up a cat, but you never know. A surgical pin in one leg, a magnet, and there`s your cat, dripping wet and seriously malevolent!

I am too, plus I break out in hives. Did I mention my youngest son is at home still and has a cat? Doc gives me allergy shots every so often.

That is my worry about my drone and the reason why I added it to my homeowners policy.

I dropped a couple of screws and bolts, my wife glasses in Rideau Canal (guess who had to dive to get them back), a stainless steel vent cover in a Rideau Canal lock (the dock line went in and chopped it),and my wife twice, one at the dock at the marina (she was a bit too quick to jump aboard) and once on a Rideau lock dock (she was a bit too fast to jump out)

Yes my wife is a stunt woman lol

Dropped a few things I can recall.

An expansion bit which exploded out of my pocket. Yes, I periodically use a brace and the bits. Actually I have several braces.

THe last was the grill from the barbeque. Next day at Low tide and I could see it and a bit of fishing got it.

Recently was a custom modified chisel I use as a scraper. Lucky it was not an expensive unit. One bounce on deck and it waved good bye.

Never dropped our cat although our dog took a couple swims.

Bought a pair of black Ray ban wayfahrer, when i was 20 y,o. I dropped a bottle in the water 25 years later, so i took of my glasses and put them on deck, cause I didn't want to drop them to, when I pick up the bootle. As soon as I looked down the wind took my glasses and sent them owner board. It was proppably meant to be.
