My uncle brings his 2 labradoodles with him all the time in his 16 ft cat. His cat has a huge flat a 12'x7' flat deck (only hole is captain's bay) covered with outdoor carpet. It makes it really easy for the dogs, him (getting old) and my dad (gettin old and lost half a foot which= balance problems) to get around the boat without issues.

I waited too long to get my dog used to boating, or maybe I waited too long to get into boating? She loved wading (not swimming) but if you could trick her into getting on a boat, no matter how large, that solid mass of muscle tuned into a 160lb bowl of cowering and quivering jello. THEN you'd have to pick her up to get her out. Not an easy task.

I love all the photos of everyones' water dogs. We have two geriatric labs--one is 11 and has cancer, the other is 15.5 and just an antique (and lost another at 13.5 four years ago). Thank you all for sharing. It does my heart good and brings back some fond memories. Enjoy them, they don't live as long as we do.

We didn't ever run anything bigger than Class 1 with them, and they'd generally run the tubes until they got exhausted and then sit on the floor.
