its pretty much the same as the first picture but the mounts at the top are pipe welded in a 90 with a swing mount attached with a screw going thru the pipe.
im not really crazy about a fold away unit as i dont want to clutter.
im just wondering if there are special ladders out there made to mount on stern rails or a deck mounting one that clips into the stern rail.
if i cant find anything my next step is to contact a shop that can fabricate one into my stern rail.
that expensive alternative would be my last resort.
problem is the canadian safe boating guide states that i need four things for safety;
1-canadian aproved personal flotation device of lifejacket of apropriate size for each person on board
2-one bouyant heaving line no less than 15m in length
3-one approved lifebout with an outside diameter of 610 or 762 mm that is attached to a bouyant line no less than 15m in length
and the police have been crawling around pulling everyone over the past few weekends so im hoping to get this resolved by friday.
