It may not be so easy on much bigger rib though.
The very minimum I would say. This is a good thing to have anyway.
I would suggest most strongly that you do not do this without having a Anchour or sea Anchour down (obviously) as any wind could come up and you may find yourself alone at sea as it blows away. May sound obvious but there is always one who will not have thought it through.
Also get a cheap ladder that works. The rope made up of useful length foot hold with 6" hard plastic over loop to get foot in and Knots as hand hold.
It is harder to get in when cold.

You should think this through before going over the side!!!!

Nice, everyone seems to have a trick up their sleeves, loop in the rope sounds promising, cheap and multi purpose!!

alternatively look on they provide relatively cheap MOB scoops, scramble nets and ladders (Compared to jason's or Dacon)
