Ted,
I'm with you about boarding ladders. They are a must. Have you ever noticed how many sailors that have permanently mounted boarding ladders keep them tied up with line so that they can't fall open? As I wrestle for my life after falling overbaord that is the second worse thing that as I look up that I would want to see. The first is the boat merrily sailing away on autopilot.

Regards,
Rick
