Re: Transom ladders
Here is my set up. 2 wooden steps plus a 4 rung telescopic ladder. It is easy to deploy from the water. two full rungs below the water make it easy to get on to the ladder from the water.
The welding is not top quality and needs to be examined periodically. Expect a life of 3 to 4 years in continuous use.
NB The telescopic section is available on fleabay for 40 to 50 $ US. If you are in the Eastern Caribbean and buy exactly the same 4 rung telescopic ladder it will cost you 289 $ US.
