...with a Freedom 44 ketch
tried everything imaginable to help his golden retriever get a grip--including rubber booties--with no success. The older the dog got, the harder a time it had moving about on deck
. The problem wasn't just when the boat was moving; the dog even had trouble when the boat was tied up in the marina. The dog was pretty nimble on the docks but almost handicapped on non-skid. I'm not certain whether this was just a retriever thing or a big-dog thing.
It occurs to me that one possible source for a ready-made solution for the cockpit
sole might be a thick, rubber-backed astroturf golf mat from a driving range.
