Re: Swim\boarding ladder help
What make and model of boat do you have?
The best ladders are transom mounted one that are deployable from the water, always accessible, and which have some small rung pads. You might look at photos online of other boats of the same make and model to see how ladders have been retrofit to those boats.
The ladder that Catalina Direct sells for the Catalina 25 would be easy to retrofit to most boats of about the same freeboard. It is nicely made.
