Honestly chaps, if there's someone on board then hold the 'victim' under the armpits, get them to hold their breath, then it's "one" and dunk, "two" and dunk, and up onto the sponson on "three".
It's fun, it works and you don't need a ladder.
Get on with it.
It also helps with MOB when a ladder isn't always to hand.
Give it a go......it's good. Get's them involved.

If you leave the vessel voluntarily.........make sure that you can get back into it voluntarily.
It's only a vessel if you're in it.

Mine is not used for MOB but for the kids swimming off the boat the tend to jump off the bow swim round clime back on board!
If someone falls in then I would drag them back in my self, if it is me I can clime back in unaided!

The ladder I have is by Italian maker Trem if I remember rightly!

I need the ladder as although i can get in it will greatly assist my wife who has rheumatoid arthritis and can't put pressure on joints or lift herself. It also causes pain if someone pulls her out. Of course in an emergency its not an issue but for everyday general use. Swimming etc its no good. Hence the ladder thread.

The second pic in the second thread... http://www.rib.net/forum/attachment....6&d=1328296246

I made one myself with a piece of rope, a few knots and a piece of wood with two holes drilled in.

I just wrap the rope up around the wood (step) and it's small enough to store anywhere. Only really need one (maybe) two steps.

Saves a few pennies

Force 4 sell them. I was thinking about one myself, but I'm not sure if it'd rip out the screws from the transom without being bolted all the way through?
