Has anyone seen the hardware for this?

I would like to build this type of boarding step that "clips" onto the hull. Anyone know where I can buy the hardware?

Same. I would simply hang it over the toe rail. Then it is also Relocatable.

1/4-20 SS fasteners can safely take 200lbs. in sheer times 8 fasteners is 1600lbs. load in sheer. How much load do you think an anchor cleat takes in sheer on a dockline with 4, 1/4-20 machine screws on a cleat?

This flips up 90 degrees and is removable to put on the other side of the boat

Re: Has anyone seen the hardware for this?

You'll hate me but I left a bronze set at Blue Pelican before we left. I like the bent stainless and square padeyes idea. I might make one now too. We have one of the plastic steps from West Marine with 1/4" line to stainless caribiners type but it's pretty small.

Here it is in bronze:

Bronze Boarding Ladder Hardware

BTW, I had a boarding ladder with this type of hardware on my old Formosa/Peterson 46 cutter, and vertical forces were no problem. Extremely robust.

Re: Has anyone seen the hardware for this?

I spoke with the owner today. He had those ones made custom. They look way more robust than the store bought ones...Mystery solved. Thanx everyone for the input.

Re: Has anyone seen the hardware for this?

Aloha Martin,
I have used boarding ladders with that style of hardware many times and have two of them here waiting to go aboard a boat. They are extremely strong and much easier to use than any modern ones that I've seen lately. If you need photos of the ladders or specs let me know.
Before ABI went out of business they had it in their catalog as well.
later,
