Re: Anyone have any idea on installing a swim platform on the T34

With such a high counter and smallish transom this looks like a difficult project.. Are you expecting the dog will be able to climb out and on board from swimming?

We have friends who cruise with dogs and no open transom, they use a two piece folding pet ladder.. it's quite bulky to store, though.

As an aside.. have you investigated the ramifications of cruising in the Caribbean with it's many customs/checkins and their rules regarding pets?
