Jack Daniels, Kourse Kommander and Earl of Bitt, gets his float test chit.
One of the Pete Townsend Kinetic Skulpture Race legs is a water course along the Downtown shore, and so every conveyance must float. One of the Race safety checks requires contestants to get out to a judges’ boat in the water, where they receive a badge clearing them for that part of the course.
I love the PFD (Pooch Flotation Device) on the dog! And thanks to whymcycles for the id.

Years ago this Douglas fir dropped off the Kala Point cliffs during a landslide, and embedded itself in the beach. At most high tides, it gets covered by water; at most lows it get exposed to the air. The barnacles that can survive through the low tides are rewarded with fresh food when the waters return.
