Answer:  ON HIS TOWS

(A much more specific, stinky pun today!  All of the clue words are old favorites today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  They were good, but these old blue eyes saw the real words right away.  The answer letter layout did not give anything away.  A splendid jumble, in its own right.  The combination of the cartoon, the clue/question, and the answer layout with quotation marks, made the answer fairly evident.  Loved the New York Harbor!  Facing New Jersey, naturally.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I tried hard to make onward many different words and then saw the error of my thinking! Yes, stinky, stinky – and sneaky. Everything I was coming up with was short a letter! Then it hit. Love it when that happens, the letters unjumble right before your eyes!!

    I forgot to look for a sinking sail boat. Love the little tug (?) in your pic Unc. It looks like bathtub toy! LL

    The hardest word for me to unscramble was ROWNDA. Finally figuraged it out (Onward). A very good one!!! I love the challenge.
