    Hello,I have a potbelly pig that is our pet and boatmate,but he has grown to heavy to lift on the boat. I was thinking of making a hoist device to lift him up when we are on an island for our weekend camping events.he is potty trained and very well mannered and gets along great with our dogs.any ideas on a lift?,a doggy step will not work because he has hoofs.any help greatly appreciated :smt001

    I've seen a horse seating options available on some models. Does Sea Ray offer pig seating? Someone should do a search.:grin:

    Maybe the horse seating would work for your pig.

    He is 17 months old. We have had him since he was almost 6 weeks old. Naw he is not much on swimming. But he hangs out on the beach.
