Made some modifications, nice product

I have a 20' Alumaweld fishing boat and purchased the Gunwale Hook Ladder so I could get back into my boat if I fell out, as I fish alone most of the time. I removed the two folding 3" standoffs with rubber crutch tips and replaced them with 8" aluminum extensions, so when deployed the standoffs rest aganist the hull of my boat and the ladder is set at a 90 degree (vertical) position, making it easier to climb. This simple modification made my fishing trips a lot safer.

          I really cant use the ladder because it didn't set right on my bass boat but entirely my fault as it was wrong type for boat. My original ladder is no longer made & was trying to get a quick fix b4 the 4th.

            I ordered this ladder because it is difficult for me to get back up into the boat after swimming because of arthitis in my knees and the inability to bend enought to reach the small attached ladder. This is so strong and easy to use. It has made swimming a great deal of fun again...Extremely easy to use.

                This is a great ladder, heavier construction than most other ladders. We have a small waterski boat and it fits nicely in the side of the boat.

                • Q:

                  Can the stand-offs be mounted on the top step?
                  My boat has a low gunwale and with the stand-off on the second step from the top, the stand-off would likely be under the boat.

                    A:

                    While it is possible with the right tools and skills to move the stand offs, it is not recommended and would void any warranty.

                    You may be able to obtain rubber blocks and install on your gunwale separately, addressing your concern.

                • Q:

                  Does this ladder slant out a little away from the boat or is it flush with the side of the boat?? We have a 17ft. sunbird boat would this work on the side of that boat for getting in and out of the water???

                    A:

                    There are two standoffs attached to this ladder that are approx. 4 inches long that will keep the ladder protruded out from the side of the boat.
