My new ladder

So my stainless guy sold me this ladder for a heck of a deal. He swears it will be fine but the jury is still out. I'm not sure if the bracket will hold up but I'll give it a try. He said he'd fix or adjust it so i don't have much to lose. I think it needs a stop if some sort do it not pulling down on the tubes so much. It seems like a ladder on the 733 is the hardest thing. I should have gotten a dive door hull

How do you deploy that? Unbolt and switch around?

A big aluminum block on the transom would be a decent stop.

My new ladder

It's just a pin holding it in no nut in that bolt right now. I'll get a quick release pin so its easy to swap around. The ladder is aluminum so it weighs nothing.

It can swing up in the useable position so in theory I only need to swap it around for long travels.

We have a similar set up. Just secure a large fender under the frame to spread the load & protect the tubes, OK?

Yeah on these boats there isn't room on the transom, even with my single engine. Getting back on them is one if the hardest things. Be a bigger issue when I'm 10 years older.

Well three months later and I have yet to try the ladder on the water. I've only had the boat out once for a short ride in a small craft advisory. So I guess I have time to work on it.

Not aluminum yet but I had some starboard laying around so I made a stop for the new ladder. Seems to be ok, the starboard might flex a bit too much, we'll see. It does take the strain off the tube attachments but does push on the tubes. Shouldn't be worse that the rope from the old ladder. I like the travel position. Just need to figure out how to hold it down.

Jason,

Looks nice, but why do you need to have anything hold it down?
When you go to get out of the water, your weight will hold it down.
