Hearing that this year the beginning of Fleet Week would have a Tall Ships parade in honor of the War of 1812, the C.W. Post Library Association and the Oyster Bay Historical Society organized a bus trip to see the spectacle.
So, on Wednesday, May 23, 26 intrepid people got up early to get to the bus at C.W. Post’s parking lot by 6:45 a.m. It had been decided that it would be easier to go to Owl’s Head Park in Brooklyn, rather than try to get into lower Manhattan that early in the morning.
Those who boat year ’round know to take those extra precautions that come with boating during the off season. But summer adds some unique challenges: an increased number of boats, people in the water, music and activities onshore and off.
Stressors like heat, sun glare, noise, engine vibration, and the motion of the boat can produce signs and symptoms similar to those caused by ingesting alcoholic beverages. That’s because the impacts are synergistic; taken as a whole the effect is greater than the sum of each individual stressor.

Dogs can be seen taking in the sun and spray on all manner of sail and powerboats these days, and adapting just fine. But boaters shouldn’t assume that because dogs can swim that their particular dog is an adequate swimmer, or that it has the good sense not to chase that sea gull over the side.
Dogs are hard-wired to chase and swimming ability varies from breed to breed. Many with low body fat, like Greyhounds, may have trouble staying afloat. Breeds with short legs and long bodies can swim, but may tire quickly. Overboard, a dog can become disoriented and suffer the same hazards from coldwater immersion as humans.
