Any suggestions/experience on rigging
to allow for a dog to climb up on the deck
We will be living on a 41' Morgan Out Island
starting at the end of August, and I'm concerned about our 30lb English
Cocker Spaniel, Remington, being able to climb aboard unassisted.
He loves to swim, and I am positive he will end up in the water
frequently, but I would rather not have to constantly hoist him up as the ladder on this boat
is awkwardly placed and hard enough to climb by oneself. The boat
does have an approx. 16-20" swim platform across the transom, but the transom is angled out over the platform making it an awkward spot. (attached pic is not the one we will be on, and doesn't have platform, just so you can see for reference)
I am thinking that maybe 2 staggered platforms would allow for him to jump from one to the next and make his way up to the deck
. He is very athletic and agile, so I think he could manage a 2-3' jump to an approx 16"x16" platform.
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
