when i used to dive a long time a go we used to use a single aluminium scaffolding pole with short rungs coming off ,with the middle rung being longer so it would press against the tube to stop the ladder twisting ,it was fastened to one tube it then it had a rope from the top going to the oppsite tube to stop it swinging under the boat we could use it with heavy commercial diving gear

Sounds good, but a bit over the top on a 3M Sib!

I will probably go for the aluminium one as suggested by Nick.
Where would be the best position to affix the eye plate and with what type of screws considering the fact the floor is ply 10/12mm thick? I am a bit worried that the plate might just came off under weight?

m chapelow mentioned running a line from the top of the ladder to the hand rail on the opposite side. That sounds like the best course to me. No drilling, no buying extra hardware, easily used/removed.

From the drilling point of view yes, but wouldn't the line be in the way then?

it really needs a matching backing plate on the other side of the eye plate and bolted through, that way it wont pull out or even some broad washers ,i wouldent just use screws,
