How do you decide who stays in the boat whilst the rest of you brew up on the beach?

Never had the problem if i'm honest; unless you are diving the easiest is just go to the stern of the boat, put your foot on the fin above the prob, a hand on the a-frame and step right in. Cheap also!

I'm with dwalters. As long as your engine is not running!!! just climb in over the stern using the anti cav plate as a foot rest. I don't ahve an A frame and this is still a p1ss easy way of getting back in.

I've just bought a nylon rope ladder for my rib in anticipation of the sun shining and me conquering (following the good advice here) my fear of getting too close to land!

Where would be the best spot to attach a rope ladder?

Is the base of an A frame strong enough? Son probably 5 stone, dad 16+ !

This would be temporary only and I have also got some flat fenders to slide under the ropes.

I can't quite see where would be the best place and I don't want to drill anything.

I just tied mine to the grab handles on the tubes. Haven't used it in water yet but gave it ago for getting on the boat with it on the trailer. Held up fine but was bloody hard to do.
