Max & Bailey

Charbonneau is a 40' sailboat.  Included in our crew are two large dark-golden retrievers, Max & Bailey.  Pets on-board has been one of our biggest challenges and continues to provide humor, frustration, and innovation in our daily lives.  Here are some ideas that we've adopted.  If you sail with pets and have some innovative ideas of your own, we'd love to hear from  you.  

Charbonneau's Pet Tips - What Works for Us

Cruising with Your Four-Footed Friends - Diana Jessie
Diana Jessie's latest book focuses on the needs of our furry cruising companions.  Ms. Jessie adds to her own experience by sharing the experiences of many others who've also gone cruising with their pets.  If you're contemplating the idea of taking your dog or cat cruising, this book is a valuable resource.   Max & Bailey are featured on the cover of the book and some of our advice is included inside.
