I was going to ask a similar question after finding this ladder.It is similar to the first ladder.
Any comments about this one?

Cheers Nasher - I'll PM you when I've had a measure up - do you have to drill the transom or can it be 'slotted over'?

Just let me know when.

You do need to drill the transom unfortunately, for both the top and bottom mounts.

Could you plug the ends of the bottom stand off tubes and have these bear against the transom, rather than fixing them?
I had a boarding ladder on a RIB once that had this arrangement. Still got the ladder somewhere, I think.

Was thinking that myself - loath to drill the transom. And at the top could you have a clamp on arrangement or even 'interferance fit' by padding out with a fitting of some sort - guessing most of the strain is taken on the face against the outer transom anyway?

Nasher - nicked a pic of yours as it is clearer here - can you PM me details of the ladder (ie your price etc)?

Perhaps you could 'recycle' the saddle from an old outboard motor and fix the ladder to the tilt pin/tube.
It would look crap though.

If you supply a ladder I wasn't thinking of charging you to cut and weld it, although a pint of Guiness on one of our cruises goes down well.
It's an hours work which I'd gladly do one weekend whilst you wait. The ladders come up on ebay quite often if you keep an eye out.

The bottom mounts only have a reasonable size screw in the middle, they don't go all the way through.

If you can imagine a top hat shaped section with a hole through the centre, that is screwed to the transom with a blob of sealant behind it then the tube is slipped over the top and a small stainless steel bolt put through sideways to clamp it to the top hat shaped piece.

It needs to be firmly fixed as there is a lot of leaverage on it as you haul yourself on board.
