Large dog in Saturn Inflatable?

Hello there brothers!

I'm excited to have found this community here man, let me tell ya! Folks around my way are all about the trackers! Im stuck looking for a dinghy or inflatable cause of the new condo/association bylaws.

I gots me an old dog. Loyal trusty guy I want to take out fishing with me. I am trying to find an inflatable kayak or boat that is affordable and capable of holding a nearly 100lb big boy! I am not sure in terms of flooring what is important and not Any help... much appreciated

I was thinking of getting me one of these fishing kayaks. Sorry if links arent allowed. Just trying to get some answers. Any of you gents fish from your inflatable boats? Bring Fido along?

A sib that size is more roomier and stable than a fishing kayak, dogy will love it. Just have dog's nails done at a nail saloon, sharp nails could leave unwanted nail marks/scratches on tubes.

Happy Boating

Cute dog Dave, my black lab won't go near my boat as he had a bad experience on my dad's fletcher.

I am gonna try again this season and tempt him on board with lots of doggie treats

My big guy isnt crazy about water he cant touch bottom in. Maybe that will keep him in his seat tho!

I bought a Saturn SD 330W - an 11ft extra wide infaltable fishing boat for about $1000 and shipping. I have a small trolling motor and I take my old guy out ever saturday and sunday if I can. Its a pleasant little experience in the lake I have behind my house. Glad the wife finally gave up arguing that we couldnt afford a boat!!
