Hinckley Pilot 35

Sailing Yachts

Just adopted a rescue Golden Retriever, 80Lbs.  Any tips on handling this big guy regarding safety while sailing.  Also how to handle his Umm waste issues while anchored or overnight sails.  Thanks

Hi Carol - many many years ago I was sailing with a neighbors Golden . She was quite comfortable aboard . Spend almost all her time in the cockpit and at times below . One afternoon in Mt Hope Bay , she slipped and managed to slide off the stern and into the water - long , terrifying story - there was a boat off our stern who spotted the episode and sailed up to us . There were (3) young college students aboard who dove in and were able to help me get the 65 lbs Golden aboard . Without the extra hands this would not have been a happy ending . There were only two onboard our boat and that wasn’t enough muscle

There are some Pilots sailing with dogs but not us - that was my last experience with a dog aboard .

But we all know that we need to stay aboard and so do our dogs . Harnesses and jack lines now available

Hi and thank you for the feedback. he will definitely be tethered and in a vest while underway. Again thank you,  Carol/Bijou
