Cruising my 1995 Catalina 42 MK II sailboat with my cat XO, the good, the bad, and the ugly of the open ocean world cruising life.

AWOL Like a Sailor
I'm Coming for YOU!
XO decided to get off Reboot this morning. Since the companionway stairs are on the dock being varnished I didn't think he could get off, but he did. Apparently he managed to go all the way down the dock (a good 100 yards) and on to land. At that point he noticed some goslings. The DNA kicked in and he got into attack mode. He got about 5 feet from the geese and mama took big issue. She first started to flap her wings, then went after XO and grabbed his ear. Chip (the marina manager) heard the commotion and went out and broke things up. XO exited to under the marina office and Chip came and found me. When XO heard my voice he came out from under the office. He cried all the way back to the boat. It was my fault he got in trouble!!!
Just like a sailor - sneaks out for a night on the town and the Shore Patrol has to bring him back in chains.
