My last mutt went everywhere with us. In bad weather he was jammed in at the front of the seat between the console where was was quite happy. However in anything bar reaaly bad weather (and remember we didn't usually want to be out in this either!) he was very happy hanging over the side biting the spray.
The new one has a new lifejacket but hasn't been out as yet as I rebuild the outboard and refurbish the rib but we, and the dog, generally preferred to be out on the boat than left in the house.
Do the pics and video look as if he didn't want to be there?

Getting back in is a big problem. She cannot cope with the ladder and tries to climb up the large Yamaha....
You mean she scrapes the laquer off the engine or scrapes the tubes?????

Let the bl**dy thing swim!

If it don't like the facilities on board - off it goes!

The only reason I can think off for taking a cat or dog out in a rib is to take it a few miles offshore and get rid of it!

I can remember my wife doing just this once.
My dog howls sometimes when we go diving and he is in the boat, so we were doing a fairly long deco dive on a wreck called the Helena Faulbaums south of oban and left the two girls in the boat with the dog.
A hour later we surfaced, got in the boat and de-kitted, then noticed there was no dog in the boat anymore and we were anchored about 400m offshore?
At this point the girls pointed to a small rocky island about 500m away that had a dog wandering back and forth watching us, they had got fed up listening to him grumping so had motored over and pushed him overboard to swim to the island then came back and hooked back on the shot about 45 mins before.
The dog, and myself, were not impressed!

[QUOTE=willk;671780]Lads. Google it:

Ship's Dog
Ship's Cat

Do the math. BTW, cats do quite well on cruising yachts.


Our cats lived with us on the boat 10 yrs, did 50,000 miles including two Atlantic crossings. At anchor in the evening they would both jump in the dinghy and howl until we took them ashore for a walk. Flying fish on the deck always confused them as they grabbed them - unexpectedly fishy tasting birds - which they immediately dumped on my pillow.

Back on topic, there was a boarding "ladder" (more of a ramp) for dogs (which would be way too large and cumbersome for a RIB), that consisted of a board with cross-cleats for traction, that sank partway so as to have one end a foot or two underwater. The other end was secured to the swim platform.

Something similar could be made up (some kind of foam reinforced with pool noodles, perhaps?); just has to be something they can get on top of, and climb up over the tubes or transom.

Barnet marine sell a diver recovery system around 150 it's made of fabric and rolls up doesn't weigh much deploy it float dog over it and roll him in but for me the life jacket with handle on top is all you need you could always adapt it for two people to lift the dog in. end of the day your only pulling it over your tubes.or a three to one pulley system off the AFrame to assist

My dog has a life jacket with a handle however I have found the easier way to get him onboard is a sausage. He can leap like a seal to get back if he sees a sausage :-)

Seriously though, the crew saver one makes life a lot easier to haul over the side if needed and even a dog will get tired quickly in cold water.
