boarding ladder at the bow - and dive platform
I'm rebuilding a 30' ex-military RIB and am wondering if it's practical to build a boarding ladder into the bow. I've attached an image of a boat in Australia that has one to give an idea of the concept.
I am also interested in any pictures you might have of aluminum dive platforms that extend from the transom - especially any that fold down from a radar arch or similar.
I would appreciate receiving pictures, advice, suggestions, references and comments on either idea. I'm ordering new tubes this week so any quick suggestions on how to integate the bow ladder would be especially appreciated.
