I looked at the One Step on the west marine site. I saw the video on Doyle's webpage, I am not sure if it will work for getting in and out of the water.

I use a swim ladder for swimming. It hangs from the bulwark. The One-Step is just for the dinghy, actually just for guests, as I can step up.

I gotcha. I dont have a very wide transom to begin with. Most of that space is taken up with my outboard mounting bracket. I was looking for a way to hang a ladder over the side that is easily detachable. My Santana 20 sits fairly low in the water so I was looking for some dingy type ladders that might work.

I think we're mixing 2 different issues here...


One issue is getting from the water to the dingy.

Second issue is getting from the dingy to the boat.

Different problems in need of different solutions.
Please clarify what you are refering to; into the dink or onto the mother ship.

Sorry. I dont even have a dingy for my boat. I am looking to get from the water into the boat. My transom isnt big enough for a regular bolt on type ladder so I was looking for a ladder that I could hang over the side. Most of the ladders that I have found were made for dingy's and not 20' boats. I was wondering what ladder would work best in this situation.

Mines fairly old but it is simular to this boarding ladder, mounts over toe rail at the beam; now I'm looking for plans on a teak boarding ladder

Hi MarkCK,
The one that I have found to be the easiest is the Stainles Steel one from St. Croix. It does not tuck under the boat when you get out of the water (as is you pointed out is the case with the rope ladders or webbing ladders).....HOWEVER it is really expensive. It is sold at Defender, West and most inflatable boat shops for over $200.



Another design that is an over the tube style, at a more affordable price range (Defender $79.99) is the one from Scoprega Italy. Aluminum tube, which secures over the tube to an eye in the transom. It works, I have one. Probably the best solution in the under $100 price range It stows/folds easily and is light-weight.


Hope that helps.

S-
