Gunwale Boarding Ladder, Folding 4 Step - $30.00
One of the problems we had while cruising to other countries was getting on and off the boat
. Sometimes we needed to dock
with the bow pointing into the dock
so it was necessary to use the bow platform to get on and off the boat
. Problem was the bow platform was 3 to 4 feet (1 meter or so) above the dock. So we got this folding ladder so we could climb up to the bow platform without having to swing from a halyard
like a monkey or climb and balance on dock boxes to reach the bow platform. There are catch plates available from marine
stores to secure the ladder to the bow platform if desired.
If side tied to the dock then these portable ladders hook right over your boatís gunwale with a hull
hugging design for added safety
The ladder can also be hung over the gunwales amidship and used to get on and off your boat from a dinghy
. It is lightweight and folds flat for easy stowing. Plus, it floats if accidentally dropped overboard! Premium vinyl covered hooks protect gunwale surfaces. Thick non-skid steps feature an Ultra Traction tread thatís kind to your feet.
