Hi Gang
I am looking for some advise on dog platform...there are so many to choose from...alun, carpet step, wire mesh ramp & so on.

hope to get some input from hunters that have tried some.....

they range from 65.00 to 200.00........ :?: :?:

Hi Buck
I will be using on a large jon boat. on the side or the transom...
Always before I helped them in, "but" this boat is a lot higher& most of my dogs are large! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've been using one made by Gator Trax. It's simple, light and tough. It's made of aluminum witha non-skid coating on the platform.

stay away from the metal grate, unless you carpet it. Dogs can get their toenails caught in it trying to climb in and rips them out. nasty injury that can be prevented.
