Re: Boarding a Dinghy from the Water.

Defender carries a bunch of different ladders. We have the cheap $60 one and it works fine.

Fair winds,

Re: Boarding a Dinghy from the Water.

I use Ann's approach. I had a dinghy ladder, but the darn thing would angle back under the dink when anyone tried to climb up, making it next to useless. Plus, it's just another piece of "stuff" to junk up the boat.
