Your dogs will do fine. I was really nervous about having my dog in an inflatable boat, but inflatables are tougher than people realize. My dog now loves my Zodiac F470...

I am looking at buying an inflatable boat mainly because its the only type of boat light enough that my new corolla can tow, I just traded in my truck and sold my jet ski last year because I thought I was done with the water, but I guess I wasn't. I am looking at the 15 foot Saturn SD470 with the aluminum floor. My question is, I have two large dogs, one is 85 pounds the other is 65, has anyone had big dogs in their inflatables, or am I just asking to sink? I'm worried their claws will tear the material

The other question I have is, has anyone had any experience with the Saturn line of inflatable boats? I'm thinking of getting a used 20-25 HP outboard. I don't plan on going into the ocean with it, just rivers and lakes, but I never like to rule anything out.

Thanks for your input,
Mike

But how did you hook a Basking shark? You don't get many of them in the river Wear.

+1 on the pet floation device with handle. My Newfoundlands can swim for awhile but I can't get them back aboard without a handle. I have not had an issue with with either PVC or hypalon fabric tolerating their claws.

The flotation devices with handles are a good idea. I discovered this when the collie pup that just learned to swim decide to jump overboard and swim a half mile to shore.

A wet 30 lb dog is quite the handful to get a good grip on. Funny part was it took him a hour to get into the water that morning, the waves kept chasing him out if the water the he would turn and bite them.

Now when he is in the boat he stands on the left rear tube beside the motor and bites the waves as they pass.
