Rib ladder

Hi, I have been diving for 30 years and have seen many people struggle to get into Ribs as well as SIBS. So I decided to design my own ladder. Its called the RIBBOARDER. If you check out my website you will see something new and very different. This is a ladder sytem to fit most Ribs and SIBS. Its not made out of a peg bag, and doesn't fix next to the meat mincer (UK divers dont like to switch the engine off when picking up people in most dive sites). The video clip says it all. www.ribboarder.co.uk

stay safe Tricky Micky

I've been looking at the Plastimo boarding ladder (their reference 29181). The details say that it is suitable for 3 - 6m ribs. Does anyone have experience of this ladder? Does anyone know why there is a length restriction?
