When you’re out on the water on a hot summer's day, there’s nothing quite like jumping into the deep blue to cool down. Save yourself the hassle of scrambling back onboard by equipping your craft with a boat ladder.
Not only do ladders help your get in and out of the water with ease after a swim, snorkel or dive, but they can assist in boarding from a dingy and serve as a lifesaver if someone has fallen overboard.
Choosing the Right Boat Ladder
At Bias Boating, we stock an array of ladders to suit a wide range of needs, including three steps, five steps, transom, rope, foldable hook, inflatable, retractable and stainless steel. When selecting the right ladder for your boat, it’s important to consider the following:
- How much space is there onboard your boat?
- Where will the ladder be stored?
- Where can the ladder be mounted?
- Who will be using the ladder?
From there, you can choose the ladder best suited to your boat. When mounting, ensure there are at least two or three rungs below the surface to make climbing more accessible, and position it in a spot that is easy for boarding and won’t compromise the sturdiness of the boat.
Finally, to prevent your ladder from breaking, ensure it is stowed away when not in use.
