Boatyard Dog - Issue 119

Rocky

By The Editors
RockyPhoto by Benjamin Mendlowitz
We can see here that Rocky is driving the boat, which makes sense because Rocky is Benjamin Mendlowitz’s assistant and someone has to do the driving while Mendlowitz, an acclaimed marine photographer, is working the camera. Rocky certainly has the tools for the job: a GPS to tell him where he is going, dials to report how the engine is doing, a throttle to speed him along, and a suicide knob on the wheel for lively directional control. This is all well and good, but it’s clear that Rocky doesn’t have his paws on the wheel. With no evidence to the contrary, we suspect that he is texting… errr…make that Rrrrexting…while he is driving! To which we say, WoofTH?!
