Dogs and ribs

Hi first post on this site
Have a dell dory (please forgive me ,do read on)
I have 2 dogs which go out with me and family (up to 6)
Would like to get a rib but will the claws on the dogs damage the rib?
The dogs like to sit up the front and let the wind whip past they do scratch the dory

Will they damage the rib
Go out in the sea to picnic camp etc
What have you found?

The three dogs that have been on my RIB have all scratched the tubes. Not through the first (colour) layer of hypalon... yet, but the marks seem permanent.

I try to discourage dogs, I don't mind their owners.

Our lab did a month cruise around isle of man down to southern Ireland & up to northern Ireland then on to Isla & jura before making our way back to the clyde not in a rib but a cruiser

apart from the hairs no damage to the cruiser from her claws & we spent several nights at anchor & on moorings & the dog was in & out of the air deck tender & also enjoyed sunbathing in the dinghy if we left it tied along the bathing platform so she could jump in & out no damage to the dinghy either

I could imagine the softer surface of some hypalon might scratch but our dogs also keen on our 4m rib where she stands like a figurehead in the bow & I've not noticed any marks in the hypalon on the rib

I guess it depends on the exact type of hypalon as some do seem softer to the touch than others & may mark easier

wouldn't stop us taking the dog think I'd rather leave the wife!!
