Hello. Soon to be narrow boat owner.

Very few burglars could fit through a 12" porthole, going by what data I can find -- about 90% of shoulder width seems to be the limit according to cavers.

 

 

But the canny crims' use an 'Oliver' to get in thru the cat flap and open the door from the inside.

But maybe your dogs are also more obedient than ones passing by on the towpath?

They're good dogs. 😊

A friend had that happen on his boat, couple of kids set up home and treated it like a floating Wendy house

Haha. 😀

Could be worse -- a couple of years back next door's dog (yes a collie, with the same glint in the eye as yours...) stole their Xmas turkey (which was resting covered on the worktop after being cooked) and had wolfed a good part of it down before being spotted... 😞

Speaking from personal experience of these boats, it is fairly rare -- but when you *need* to do it, you're often in a *big* hurry.

 

Which is exactly when you trip over the dropped section and (very nearly) fall in. Don't ask me how I know... 😞

 

Painting one of them is a nightmare, even though you know it's there when you start, you're mind isnt concentrating on a dropped gunnel when you are going along the handrail backwards with a small brush......

After several coats of paint you would think you had learnt....
