i love my doberman,and she likes going to the boat,when she was 7 weeks old i took her to liveaboard with me at my marina just so she would become socialized with lots of different people and she has,everyone likes/tolerates her and she them,but there are lots of negitives also, she simply refuses to make a head call on the boat and even short haired dobes shed bunches then theres the safety factor,when out on the water i keep a nylon harness on her in case she fell over board i could use that as something to grab to haul her in but no doubt that wouldn't be easy,during the hottest months i leave her at home,no need both of us suffering,overall i wouldn't advise sailing/cruising with a dog
