Dogs on boats.

I have a 75 pound Black Lab who is having problems with our Beneteau 381''s steps (going up from belowdecks to the cockpit). The angle seems to be too steep. We have put non-slip pads over the teak, but again, it''s the angle and layout of the steps that is making it difficult. We have to lift him up, which is not easy! He generally is very light on his feet and is a great sailing dog, but this is our one problem. Does anyone know if these steps can be modified to help him manage? We would be interested how other large dog owners handle this issue. Thanks!
