Dog ramp for a Pearson 424?

Hi everyone!
We have recently started living aboard a Pearson 424 and are having trouble getting our border collie, Gypsy, in and out of the cabin from the cockpit. She is pretty agile and happily jumps from dock to boat but the ladder is too steep into the cockpit and my husband has to carry her. Any ideas? We are looking st done dog ramps on Amazon but they look bulky and pricey!
Thanks for any tips!

All depends on your layout, but we've had success getting our geriatric pup up and down from our cabin using a collapsing ramp. The entire drop is too far, but we finally found a way to set the ramp from up top onto a cabinet, then from the cabinet either lifting her the short way or having her hop onto a short bench and then onto the ground.

Certainly took some creativity... but now that its dialed in and part of then daily routine no big deal (and worth it as she wants to sleep where we do!)!

I am green with envy. As my wife and I plan for our next boat purchase, the Pearson 424s that appear on the market consistently bubble to the top of our favorites list.
