February Photo Contest!

Postby BrianRangerTugs on Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:35 pm

Last month’s contest was fantastic, we’ve had such a great time seeing how much fun everyone’s been having out on the water!

That got us thinking about your four-legged boating buddies, which brings us to this month’s theme, Tugmuts! Send us your favorite photo of your boating dog (Tugmut) out on a fun adventure. Whether it’s a picture of your dog in a cozy spot on board, or your pup outfitted in a sporty life jacket, we want to see the dogs of Tugnuts! Only one photo is eligible per entry so be sure to send us your favorite. If you have a cat who loves to go boating, don’t worry you’re welcome to enter the contest as well!

The winner will receive TWO embroidered Ranger Tugs or Cutwater Boats jackets!

To enter, email your photo along with a description/comment, to me at briandickhaut@rangertugs.com and I’ll post it right here on this thread.

We’ll be taking entries until February 25th at 5:00pm

Thanks, we can't wait to see what you guys have to share!

To get us started we have McQueen, sent in from Michael S.

"My dog, McQueen, whines from excitement as we drive up to the marina. He enjoys boating. We often anchor in a few nearby coves in front of some houses and he knows several labs who live there. They howl or bark at each other.

I occasionally cruise up Ego Alley where boats dock in the historic area of Annapolis. My 21’ Ranger Tug and McQueen in his life jacket attract a crowd of tourists."

Four legs, two TugBuds hanging on the hook in Mud Bay.

Our budgies love to soak in the view when we cruise. Slouch showing off her sea legs with Parker.

From Ernest S. "This is Katie, she was always a good boat dog even when she was crabby. Here she is on our first Ranger (a Kent Ranger manufactured in the same old quansett hut on Pacific Highway)"

In from John and Lois:

"The photo was taken by fellow tugger Paul Happel of our First Mate Harrison in Desolation. Harrison past last September on the way to Roche. Harrison was well know in the Tug Nuts Crowd. We have a new First Mate in training Jamison. He is progressing well however there will never be another Harrison."

From Gini L.

"Here’s an entry from me for the February boating contest. This is Fritz. He was 9 years old when this was taken. It was his first time aboard a boat, and he took to it like a true mariner. About a year after this was taken, he developed glaucoma and lost his eyesight. So his days as chief navigation officer were limited. But at age 14, he is still going strong."

From Mark L.

"Well, “Tugmuts” may be my favorite type of photography. Ranger Tug boating with Moxie, my best four-legged friend, is a great source of pleasure – and priceless photos. Attached is one of my favorites, taken at Laura Cove in Desolation Sound, on our southbound return from Alaska last summer. Moxie, our 4 year-old Golden Retriever, and I were exploring the cove on our SUP board, and as we approached Seaquel my wife Peggy captured this action shot as we decided to go for a swim on a perfect hot day in that wonderful warm Desolation Sound water. You can see two other Ranger Tugs in the background (I believe there were four Ranger Tugs in the cove that day!)."

It's great to see all the entries come in over the weekend! Today is that last day, but I'll be taking entries until 5:00PM PST, so send in your photos while there's still time!

Another great shot, this time from David S.

"A bike ride into town means bringing my dachshunds too! These guys get a lot of attention....almost as much as my Ranger tug! Simon is on the right and Otis is on the left. Great traveling companions!"
