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

Sorry, Delite, "Mouse Terrier" is my joke....code for cats. Hence, the litterbox.

Looks great! I'm thinking I shouldn't go for the hyper dog!

to each his own but most small dogs seem to be too yelpy,high strung and downright vicious also my dog even though very gentle one look at her on my boat and strangers give it a wide berth[go figure] during the night if someone or even a duck walks on my dock,gypsy gives a quiet pff pff but no barking.i posted her pic on my profile.btw i am a big fan of thrown away dogs,loyalty and a willing to please their new caring owner seem to be the norm

This was our Doberman, she died some time ago, best dog I ever had. Never took her on the boat though.

Just curious, how do the doggie nails affect the cabin sole as far as scratches go?

Dunno, never tried, but with a Doberman wanting to get to the high side you will be down to bare wood pretty quick I reckon.
