Re: Transom mounted boarding ladder?

You wouldn't permanently mount a side ladder, just the sliding connectors so once it's on it is secure. Mine goes over the toe rail and hooks to the bulwark.
The stern ladder is permanent, the side is the one that gets most of the use once we drop the hook.
It folds for storage and gets hooked on when we need it/ want it. Permanent mounting would be a problem in the slip.
