ladder

My familly has got a new Zodiac Pro 9 rib (well about a month) and we took it down to Devon where we went into small coves, anchored up and went ashore. When we went to leave we needed to get on the boat and we cant climb in because the ladder we got is rubbish (plastic thing on nylon rope) and just goes under the boat. Please can anyone tell me the best ladder to use or give me a website? Can't have one fixed to the transom as there is not enough room.

An alternative to a ladder for this situation is to use the engine ASSUMING IT IS OFF and there is no risk of it restarting. (This also assumes it is tilted down). The antiventilation plate makes a good foothold (and getting over the transom is usually easier than over a tube). No doubt there will be some people here who are horrified at this and the strain it may put on the engine - but it does work.

I had a removeable transom ladder on my Avon, but still used the engine which worked fine.
