thanks for sending along the pic. here's what i know so far. four rungs is way too short for me to board after a swim. the first rung just touches the waterline. i made myself an etrier out of webbing. it works but yuk! i'd like to have two rungs at least underwater. the ability to deploy the ladder from the water is intriguing. i do have a wichard webbed ladder that hangs on the stern pulpit for just that kind of emergency, but it would be nice to have a much more substantial (stainless) ladder
that had that same deployment feature.
unfortunately, the boomkin on my boat is much shorter that the bcc. there is no humanly way possible to pass thru that eye. so that's out for me.
where would you mount your dive ladder?
you are right about living with it for a long time. my mistake
