RIB Boarding Ladder

I am looking for a boarding ladder for my 6m RIB, there is no room on the transom so need one that goes over the tubes and that will fold away when not in use. Spotted these in this months PBR magazine. Has anyone had any experience of them?

Been thinking of getting one of these myself, easy to fold away under a jockey seat or anchor locker.

I made room for one on the transom by sectioning it through the middle and welding it back together.

It's wide enough for a booted foot.

This will just swing up under the boat when you climb up it

Not ideal I agree and I wouldn't buy one, but perhaps it's down to technique feet on the rung and knees on the pods then pull up and straighten legs?
Prefer shiny stainless myself, single pole with pegs either side for using with fins.

ive made two of these Rope Ladder | How To Tie An Rope Ladder| Bait Presentation Knot and have them permanently fixed to either side of my frame. yes they swing under the boat when using them, but with only a little practice they are really easy to use.

Ok it's not hard, but then I have never found it hard to just pull my self in over the tubes, but if you are trying to make it easy why buy something that will swing under the boat and pinch your feet to boot?

Cos its cheap Seriously though, if its for regular use like diving or snorkelling fair point but for m.o.b. or emergencies I don't see a problem with it. Better than nothing and easy to store
