We like the ladder and its construction but with our boat it does not work well. So as described in the comments we read it does fit all boats. The back and sides of our boat turn inward so the ladder leans inward making it a little more difficult to board. We personally think if there were another set of extenders at the bottom of the ladder and both set of extenders were longer, it would make boarding a snap. We ordered a four step thinking it would work better in deeper water but the 3 step would have been better.

    Comments about Dotline Gunwale Hook Ladder, 4-Step:

    I have a Crownline boat with built-in ladders fore and aft,but they are not near as good as the Dotline hook ladder.The dotline is wider and longer in the water and much easier to use the those that came with the boat which are not near as wide or near as long.Thanks for a great product.

          We have a deck boat that has a ladder but nothing to hold onto when you get off the ladder! This ladder hooks over the side and works for children up to a 6'8" basketball player. Best money I ever spent!

                A:

                Yes. As long as there is nothing inside of the boat preventing the ladder hooks from hooking over the gunwale. You can move the stand-offs to a position where they rest against the side of the boat and this will help keep the ladder in a vertical position when climbing it.

                Yes, as long as you have something for the hooks to hang on that is secure.

                This item is designed to hook over the gunnel of a boat. You would need to select a ladder that would have dock mounting hardware.
