Rib Ladder

I have been looking to get a decent ladder to fit to the side of my rib.

I have one of those typhoon ladders and frankly its pants. Space is limited on the transom so I cant fit one of those either.

The perfect solution is this one

Rib Boarder Home

Has anybody tried/got one? Isnt the guy a member on here? I have tried contacting the email address but no reply.

Are they still available and anybody have any idea on price? Anyone selling a second hand one?!

Thanks

Has anyone used one of these??

I am seriously considering ordering one. They are available, I just got in contact with them.

These look like one of the best rib ladders I've seen.

Sorry, can I ask a question?

If the engine is off, why can't you put one foot on the cavitation plate?

That's how I do it but with a stainless steel prop just below it, it's not the safest way of getting onboard in bear feet. I won't let the mrs do it I drag her over the toobs

That is the way I currently do it, but when I have a bunch of people on my boat I need to make it easier for them. I was also considering this type:

RIB ladder

Both are made in the UK. Do you know where I could buy that type of ladder? I would have bought it from him, but I missed it by a few weeks.

The ladder that was sold on here is an option on XS Ribs which are sold by Barnet Marine. They aren't cheap though

I sourced one of the cheap stainless steel 'speed boat' ones off ebay.

Sliced a bit out the middle so it was still wide enough for a foot, and welded it back together.

Sorted
