You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

dogsailors is an unknown quantity at this point
Both dogs have done extensive coastal cruises as well as hiked the appalachain trail and canoed down several rivers once even in the atlantic. My dogs are cared for far better than most and I will not feel sorry for a dog who eats and sleeps all day. I was not asking for opinions but simply wanted to know if anyone has cruised with these near genuis dogs. Obviously no one on this site is acctually out cruising so I will have to see for my self. Good luck arm chair sailors have fun talking sh*t while Im out sailing.

ianhlnd will become famous soon enough ianhlnd will become famous soon enough
Stuffed Bull Terrier Recipe
Feeds 20 stranded hungry sailors
2 well fed dogs
6 lbs dry rice (organic long grain brown best)

do not feed or water dogs for at least 5 days. This will clean intestines and make them very hungry. On the 6th day, give animals dry rice. After eating supply all the water they can drink. The rice will swell in their stomach, some add onions or garlic to the rice.

place over spit rotate frequently and enjoy.

No need for name calling but you might want to check this out customs in the bvi sayes pets to remain onboard http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/Br...lities#Customs
here is another one from antigua http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/An...lities#Customs
I think you should take them, probably be perfectly happy and healthy livin on a boat for weeks on end, may also stop a bording. and who is this about anyway, its about you not the dogs.

If your are going to cross the pond. Get a rabies vacination certificate for them before you go and take 30 days to get there. Most EU countires require one. Use the noonsite to check conditions.

do the math.

a typical 40 ft sailboat has a usable interior square footage of around 280 sq. ft.

Would 2 crew members, and a couple of dogs be "comfortable"?

Yes, it has been done, It is being done now, and it will be done in the future... but so has shooting your self in the arm. Doesn't mean its the brightest of ideas.

It would be my opinion that the answer would be...
"hey, I can live in a washing maching carton, but would I subject my pet to it?"

The choice is yours., let us know how it turns out for you.

CP-

Apparently he's really not interested in any answer but an overjoyous "Yes, we should all be doing that..."

Two large dogs, unless they are rather sedentary, are not going to be ideal boat companions, especially on longer ocean passages. Coastal cruising or island hopping would probably be okay with them though.
