Steve, can that new idea/set up hold its position when someone climbs onto it. With a tube holding the weight, the tube I suspect will take the weight but deform slighly and may then become unstable. Does it stay in place with weight on? How is it secured? and do steps stay in position as you climb?

The idea looks OK but we carry the folding system ladder and it is very basic as a recovery option.

Hi Karl

Just watched the slide show, but missed the ladder ...... (Must catch up at some point, as I Push Tin at Swanwick)

Ian, I am going down to Tide Marine tomorrow to check it out. Our tubes don't deform that much, so should remain very stable and the attachments look very well made.


I'll let you know
Steve

Went down to Tides in Poole, very impressed by staff and the quality of the product. Bought the longer of the two models and hope to fit over the weekend, if the weather stays dry.
The ladder comes complete with everything needed including preping, glue in good quality instructions.

I will let you know how it performs

I would also recommend the Armstrong ladder which apart from being strong and well made also tucks away neatly. The 4 rung is perfect for us.
