If you turn off the engine, it is quite a good ladder.

The feedback is good though.
Got one last year for my Bombard and they are a nightmare to use because as you push to climb up, the ladder goes under the hull and away from you. you just end up laying on your back in the water.

One of the other guys on the lake I was at something very similar to the plastimo but without the bottom step - the key to it was that it was solid and halfway down bent away from the boat, the bend was still at mid tube level and therefore very stable.

It attached to the rail along the top of the tube with a couple of flexible straps

all good except he got it with his boat and I havent been able to find one anywhere yet!!!!

Yes i agree the stainless one looks nice but its not in the country and i bet thats even more expensive. Oh well, looks like i might have to get this one Aluminium Folding Ladder if the other store arent getting them anytime soon. I shall email them and see what they say. By the looks of it they are virtually the same except the price.
