Emergency ones are pretty robust. Could be worth considering if your not planning on any heavy use.

Is it for the 4m? You might consider a simple L shaped drop down pole with a teak/mahog. step on the bottom. You really only need a "foot up" onto a wee boat...

You could use it as a flag pole when in the upright position

As you say there isn't a lot of room on a RIB Transom for the normal type of fold down ladder.

My soulution was to narrow the ladder by cutting several inches out of the middle and welding it back together.

It's just wider than required for one foot, and makes getting in the boat much easier.

The smaller Nashers use it more than me and find it really useful.

Nasher - that's a really neat ladder and the perfect solution, definite gap in the market there. What ladder model was it to start with?
