Steve-
It's either a harness and lifting handle, or take a look at the sporting stores like Cabelas.com where they sell special ramps and such for hunting retreivers. The "hunting water dog" market is about your best source for non-nonsense "dog in the boat" supplies.

Those who love their dogs, too much to leave them ashore, and expecting to take them cruising, should consider the implications of heartworm.
Heartworm infestation is dangerous; untreated dogs die and treated dogs go through weeks of discomfort while the worms are killed and expelled from their bodies.
Although at one time confined to more southern climates, heartworm has now spread to nearly all climates where its vector, the mosquito, is found. Heartworm disease is now present on every continent except Antarctica, and occurs where these four factors are found:
* a susceptible host population
* a stable reservoir of the disease
* a stable population of vector species
* a climate that supports the parasite’s life cycle

I think he's saying that NZ is home to packs of wild dogs.

Also, Steve, you have my sincere sympathy for being stuck in the Mojave Desert. I'm not sure Purgatory is a strong enough word, though - I think it goes much deeper than that.

Purgatory

TaoJones,

Thanks for the sympathy 125F yesterday & "cooling off" to 122F today.
Can't wait to escape & get back out on the water.

Steve

I sail with my dog. He lies in the cockpit with his legs up in the air against the leeward side, as the boat comes about he rolls across to the other !!

when we first went sailing he was very unsure about the folder boat (floppy bottom). He learnt about the amazing properties of water one night when it was absolutely still . Fair enough the water looked like solid shinny ground, with the moon bouncing off it. Magic...until you step out of the dingy to go for a stroll !!!!Hes getting passed it now (nearly14) but where l go he goes, and if that means sailing, then sailing we go. If l leave him any where he gets the complete shits with me. Parks himself in a corner with his backside towards me and wont look at me. It makes you feel very guilty. I would much rather lift him in and out of dingy, up and down companionway, and yes...let him curl up on the end of my bed...............by the way.........his name is ..COOPER !!



ps ..heartworm and deadly paralysis ticks are a real problem here and need to be treated seriously...

Dogs aboard

Well, here is my two cents on this pressing issue. I have the best crusing/dog boat going. A Gozzard 36 Pilot House. With the Pilot House there is no ladder for the dog to deal with. The Transom opens up down to the water level allowing my 2 German Shepherds to board fairly easy after a swim or dingy ride. I don't know if there are any body builders on this forum, but attempting to lift a 120 lb, wet Shepherd is more than I am willing to do. This also addresses another issue, weapons on board. While I own some and follow the thinking on that issue, anyone that wants to tangle with my crew, is craizer than I am; and I have a certificate to prove it. There is only one flaw in "My two Cents" anyone interested in my option would have to talk H. Ted and company into building you a
Pilot House. Depending to who you talk to, Gozzard built only 4 to 6 of them.
I have been assured that they still have the moulds, so it's only a question of $$$$$$$
I will attempt to post some pictures.
