If you have an A frame then a permanently rigged handle over the engine(s) can aid you reboarding over the transom, using the cavitation plates on the engines. That is how the RNLI rig the Atlantics for reboarding after a capsize.

If I've sussed it correctly, I've attached a pic that shows the arrangement.

That assumes you had the presence of mind to deploy it as you were ejected. A ladder in the boat does you no good when you're in the water.

BTW, water sucks heat from you 25 times faster than air of the same temp. Being in cold, moving air while also being wet may be miserable, but nowhere near as miserable as being immersed.

consensis would say use skeg and add a loop to the top of the aframe within reaching distance, simple and effective.
