Minnewaska Welcome aboard CoastieCruiser. Hopefully, someone replied via PM and you have things worked out.

Since most sailor I know are picky about what shoes their guests wear aboard, I'm skeptical about how many would welcome a Great Dane.

Another idea might be to post on a general aviation forum to look for a volunteer who is already going your way. You would likely have to crate and tranquilize your friend. I will bet you could find someone willing to help those serving their country. Good luck.

Branson and the loo

I'm trying to get my count up too...

I know of some people who have trained their dogs to use a litter box. Usually works best with smaller dogs though--depending on how good Branson's "aim" is. You might have success with some of the scented artificial turf products, although I have no experience with them.

Also, if you need an additional hand, I may be able to be avaiable, depending on the dates.

CoastieCruiser Thanks WanderingStar; I'll check both out!

WanderingStar Glad you're enjoying the site, thanks for adding to it. You seem to have no takers here yet. Yahoo has a forum for cruisers in Yahoo Groups called World-Cruisers. You might also find something at Offshore Passage Opportunities, though that is a subscription site. Let us know how it goes.

CoastieCruiser -OvO-,

you can definitely count on photos and a travelogue. Though it's been a while since he's written, I'm sure Branson will even include the trip on his blog No Saddle Required

CoastieCruiser jameswilson29,

Branson responds well to training, and there are two methods I'm working on to getting him to relieve himself while on a boat:

1. for those times when swim call is appropriate, relieving himself while swimming is an option
2. for all other times, I plan on purchasing an item similar to this:

CoastieCruiser WanderingStar, I'm slowly getting the post count up, but I keep getting distracted with reading all the great threads on SailNet!

-OvO- If you can pull this off, I hope you'll take pictures and write a travelogue. I'm fascinated to hear how you make a voyage of such duration with a Great Dane.

jameswilson29 Any techniques you care to share about Branson relieving himself while on the bounding main?

I imagine that is no small feat...

I'll try adding a few more posts to see if I can get PM authorization; any idea how many posts it requires?

It's either 5 or 10, you might be there.
