Help. We have an 1982 Hunter sailboat and can not find a swim ladder
tall enough for our 100lb Golden Retreiver to get back into the sailboat
after swimming. Has anyone come up with a solution? We don't have a
swimming platform or a walk thru back like the newer sailboats.

We tried to clip on a line to his life jacket but he was too heavy and the
clasp broke.

I hope that someone can help us. My Casey is just too heavy for me to

In order for a dog to get himself up out of the water you have to get support down under his hind legs. Some systems involve a long ramp with a float at the end to hold it up but low enough in the water for him to swim into.

If your sailboat has high free-board all the way around the transom you have another problem for him to overcome.

Maybe you can use the end of the boom to lift a doggy sling.

Good luck.
Look at www.doggydocks.com/ for ideas
