Nordhavn Pet Adventure


Bisquet – Mixed Breed (dog)


Name: Brian Hull

Boat name: Katie Jane

Boat model: Nordhavn 57

Years cruising with pet: Eight


Funniest moment: She found a flying fish on the deck, and bought in into the salon as a trophy.


Scariest moment: Jumped from tender to swim step, and fell-in. Strong current. My wife jumped after her, and then they both had to get back on board. 


Treasured memories: The night passages crossing the Atlantic. She would sense when the person on watch was going to have a snack, and then join them in the galley or pilothouse.


Unexpected/unanticipated difficulties: Keeping her calm in storms.


Unexpected/unanticipated joys: The company on a long passage of having a pet with you.


Worst thing about traveling with pets: Documentation/paperwork. However, we've never had any "real" problems. 


Best thing about traveling with pets: The company, and unconditional love that a pet provides. 


Advice: A small pet is OK, but I'm sure it would be difficult with a large dog. 


Other: Funny moment: Trying to land a reasonable size fish. She either wants to play with the fish, or eat it!
