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.

The only product for this purpose is a stryrofoam ramp that is way too large and costs $ 120 in Europe. Somehow nobody else seems to think there is a market for it.

I will design and make a prototype of a grp ramp suitable for the transom of a RIB and a medium sized dog. Width approx 8 inch, length 2 ft., maybe less if I can get the dog's approval. Certainly not longer because of available space.
Will post pictures asap.

In all but perfect conditions they must constitute at least a pain in the Butt....in any Chop/weather Surley a danger not least to themselves!... also the Crew.

Having taken our 2 out a few times got to agree

If your dog is too heavy to lift over the tubes you could partly deflate a rear tube to help recover it. Alternatively swap it for a smaller lighter model!

In my (extensive) experience of Irish Dog men I found (although ..like me. great lovers of thier Dogs..and indeed most "Live/Bloodstock") for some reason...VERY much less anthropomorphic than the average English Dog/Pet owner!

One of the other advantages of dogs is that their owners tend to live longer, go to the doctors less, have better mental health and cope better with life's stresses.... are you sure you don't want a dog Maximus :o)

And hey yes, pet behaviour. What a hoot! Yep I studied that - as you may perhaps say "bollocks" subject - at the School of Psychology at Southampton Uni for 3 years for a Post Grad Diploma (how can there be so much to know I hear you ask?!) and now earn my living making life better for people and their pets. And it bought me a RIB and my island home.

So YAY for all those crazy dog lovers like me. As we seem to be into sweeping national stereotypes of people in England, does that definition of non-anthropomorphic Irish Dog men include the ones that go badger baiting? For sure there's no anthropomorphism in dislocating a badger's jaw by hitting it with a heavy spade before setting the terries on it.Or this: <edit> That's not an appropriate video for 'ribs and ribbing'-Nos4r2</edit>


Glad you feel able to openly share your opinions Maximus, and I'm so pleased to see they are so different to mine.

Now... time for walkies :o)

Goodness me!...who said you were Crazy!?..Did I touch a nerve!?
As said I am a Dog lover and owner ALL my life!!
As to the rest of your "reply" ....I will not dignify it with an answer!
Although I would suggest you remove such offensive and unrelated material from the Forum
