          I installed it on my floating dock. I like how it folds up out of the water. It helps to keep the Algae from growing on it.

                      Comments about Dockmate 4-Step Folding Dock Ladder:

                      In my original review I wrote that 3 of 4 dimensions stated in the description are incorrect. Should have been 4 of 5 dimensions stated in the description are incorrect. Just measured the step width and it is 16" (not the 18" stated) and the overall ladder width is 18". The only dimension that is correct is the tread depth at 5.25".

                      Will post another update in May or June when the boat is in the water and we have the new ladder installed.

                            Only giving this a three star rating because it does not match what the description says. Will have to wait on how well it works for some warm weather.

                            Bought this for use on our Pontoon Boat based on the specs that are in the description. It looks like what I bought but unfortunately three of the four dimensions in the description are incorrect so I really hope it will work when we get our boat back in the water this spring.

                            Things to note:

                            1. Vertical distance between steps is not 12" as stated. The first step is only 8.5" from the deck surface and the remainder of the steps average 11" so instead of the bottom step surface being 48" below the deck level it is a little less than 42". Bought this to replace the OEM ladder as it only gets the bottom tred at 32" below the deck making it difficult to get on the boat.

                            2. The extension from the inner corner of the ladder onto the deck is only 10" instead of the 15" stated so hope I can position it to avoid the steering cable.

                            3. Handrails are only 15.6" high. Not the 18" in the description. Might be an issue when older people are trying to use the ladder to get up from the water.

                            Otherwise the construction looks good and I look forward to trying it when the warm weather is back.

                              Does the ladder come with hardware to install it or must I purchase this separately? If I need to purchase hardware, which ones?

                                Yes. This ladder comes with footman loops and installation hardware. You can see the hardware kit that is included by looking at item 778514. These mount to the dock and then the ladder hooks under the loops to attach. The ladder can be easily removed by tilting it up and releasing it from the loops.

                                Yes. This is an aluminum ladder and it will hold up very well in saltwater.

                                This folding ladder only comes in a 4-step version which will extend approximately 4 feet from the top of the dock. We have a non-folding version that can flip up and release for easy removal and it comes in a variety of sizes from 3-step to 7-step. See link below. The 5-step of this version will extend approximately 5 feet from the top of your dock which puts the first step of your ladder very close to the bottom of your lake. Keep in mind that the ladder mounts to your dock and does not need to extend to the bottom. It only needs to be deep enough so you can reach the bottom step while pulling yourself up the ladder.
