Ladders

Hi all

I want to get a boarding ladder for my avon 620 but don't want one for the transom as I have an aux bracket 1 side and transducers other side.
Are the rope /fabric ones any good or can a platform be bought to attach to the a frame.
Thanks

Helpful threads.

Mount your transducer with epoxy inside the hull? Works for me, I've got a ladder one side of the transom and aux bracket the other.

Hi J2021
I've installed one of these (three step version), as rope ladders will disappear under the tube towards the hull when you load them. The s-shape of these Osculati ladders compensate for this issue. I've mounted a simple rope eye around the A-frame to clip the ladder to when in use. The rest of the time it's mounted onto the A-frame using Velcro straps. Must be good as my wife, who is a fusy b...h is very happy with it, and it can happily cope with my 90kg mass.

Too late, gone and done it but may be useful for others







Very lightweight but strong ladder and floats, should you be stupid enough, like myself, to drop it

That's really good. And there's no damage to the tubes from the rope being dragged down on it like that when there's weight on it

No issues with the rope at all. It's a dynema type weave and not abrasive in any way. When loaded the rope comes clear of the tube anyway as the ladder top pivots away slightly, assuming your anchor point on the A-frame is high enough.

Barnet Marine sell a stainless fold down ladder that fits their A-Frame. I have one and rate it. With a fabricated bracket, would be able to make it fit your A-frame.
