When you liveaboard, the act of getting from pier to yacht may come natural. Our long legs can bridge the gap over the water and allow us to step across to the other side. Our long arms allow us to grab hold of the deck gear as we secure ourselves as we cross over the water.
Our furry friends do not have this luxury, especially if they have short legs!
A gangplank will provide a safe and stable passageway from pier to deck without the fears of falling in as you make the journey. Our short legged friends will also appreciate the autonomy in letting them get on deck when they are ready, instead of having to wait for you to carry them across the gap (though they still need you to unzip the shrink wrap door).
