Show me your dive ladder

Hi all... I have a 5.9m Hurricane, which I use for diving. After years of just hauling my butt in over the tubes, I think it's time to consider adding a good dive ladder. I've seen a couple of custom ones that were ok, but before I get serious about having something fabricated, I thought I'd see if anyone had something I might use for inspiration.

This is the bar I have, and I could easily sacrifice the spare fuel tank bins. Ideally, this ladder would be easily removable. I think I'd like to attach it on the most forward tube on the frame. It's bolted to the deck and very solid.

Your brilliant thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks

You should check out Diver 1's post in the For Sale section (Bits and Pieces) from Oct 29, 2020. There is a picture of the ladder and a video of it being used by a diver. I thought this one was particularly good for diving. Good luck on your project.

Best way without a ladder:

Foot on the cavitation plate.
Hand on the cowling.
Opposite knee on the end cone.
Opposite hand on the transom or tube.

FYI : This is OP's neighbourhood
