The folding type rope ladder is totally useless. As soon as you put any weight on it the bottom rung heads under the boat. Notice the Stand-Off in the folding stainless one...... that maybe has a chance of working. The picture of the woman easily climbing into a dingy with a rope ladder is either trick still shots or she is a gymnast. Maybe because the dingy is so low you can get you center of balance over it easier but until you do your feet will instantly go underneath the dingy or boat.
