Default Boarding Ladder....

Need to install one on my 21WA O/B powered boat. Old age/fat ass/bad knees making it hard to flip over the gunnel any more....

Looking for reccos on what you guys have.

Not sure if I should go with a portable or permanent mount type? If permanent on the port or starboard side? Does it matter?

Thanks boys

I don't think port or starboard matters..... I have a portable one that goes over the gunnel which is is fine for us since we don't use the boat to swim or ski and it's just used for emergencies....

If I were to install something permanent it would be these type of transom steps but not sure that would work for your outboard boat...

If you're worried about going overboard it has to be accessible from the water 100% of the time.

And since it's a just in case thing get minimal since its also going to just be in way 99.99% of time too.

On the tow boat with had a diver ladder. It is a swing up/down single vertical pipe with 3 or 4 steps. The steps are perpendicular piping. Looking like a football lace pattern. Swings off swim platform and into the water

It's small and would work perfect in a jam. As long as boat is not chugging away from you in gear. Then you are simply screwed.

The alternative (if you have an O/B) is use the motor to climb up on the cavitation plate.

Cap Frank def something I looked at. BUT .......nothing to do with being concerned with going over accidentally. Donít ski off the boat but spend a lot of time at Skeleton Hill and the Hartshorne cut. Getting in/out is not a flip over the side thing anymore..
