Dive ladder

HI, anyone got any ideas where I can buy a dive ladder to fit over the tubes of our RIB. We want something of a decent quality and ridged rather than a rope type.

It will have some heavy loads at times with the odd twinset coming up.

Anybody got one they can recommend?

Thanks dave j

Hi thanks for the heads up, i'am in Bedford but by luck will be staying at Mountbattan centre for a weekends diving in three weeks time, so could collect and look then. How does that sound?

That's great.

What type is it and how does it work?

Thanks dave

Dive ladder

This is by far the best RIB ladder I’ve come across. We use this daily with guests in their 60s and 70s who have no problem climbing up. (locks in place in the lowered position so it doesn’t swing under the boat like you get with rope ladders etc) Google “Armstrong ladder”. Came from the US but you’ll be able to order to the U.K.
