Source? I've never seen one that will meet our needs, which entails having the stern gear pile as a dog palace. They always seem to close up tight, likely making a taller, more rounded surface. Yours looks like it may work, possibly being easier to keep it lower and flat, with a paco over the top for the throne....

Depends on how you load the contents. You can go for a round heap or keep the top flat by careful packing. Worst case you designate two loose fitting drybags to pillows which can take up space but provide some decent cushion for fido. Who doesn't have space or room for pillows on a river trip?

My limited experience with dogs is they wanna be by their master (right behind is good for the flats) and you want a safe place low to stow them through the rapids

Every dog is different. Hazel hated getting off the gearpile for anything, while Lila is bent on standing on the deck of the bow. So far Pearl likes the bow and also gets on the floor, but she's only done class I.

I'm too dumb to figure out how to post photos...even though I have posted before. Anyhow, here are a few of a rad snout rig that I am fortunate to co-own. Special thanks to my cousin for his rad design on this boat. THis is Cataract last June

More photos and I accidentally figured out how to post. Anyhow, this is the 22 foot snout rig brilliantly designed by Eddie. Tons of storage underneath the deck. I would estimate it to store about the same as a truck bed. Coolers stay extra cool underneath. The rig sleeps four people on pacos very comfortably. Hauled this whole rig with my four runner and a 10 foot utility trailer. Obviously hauling this thing inflated, backing in, and dunking ship is the best way but if you have limited means and some time at the put-in you can move this rig small and deflated. I never though that I would go this big, but really enjoyed walking around and sitting on camp chairs during the flat water.
