Default New boarding ladder

Ok so I bought my first boarding ladder to make it easier to get back into boat from the beach, I just don't have the vertical jump I used too....

Anyway it's a collapsible Armstrong type because I have limited storage. The issue is transom mount will be too close to the trim tabs, but I could squeeze between the motor and the tab, just not sure if that would be too low.

Any creative suggestions that don't involve cutting my trim tab or mounting on the side of the boat.

Thanks
Chris

Mount a swim platform and then the ladder. I would not put it between the trim tabs and motor. I'm assuming this is an outboard since you didn't give us any info about the boat.

Pic of boat and where you want to mount it would help. I agree with C Skip R on the swim platform I use the crap out of mine.

Thanks guys. Just not a big fan of the swim platform because it gets in the way when fishing. Unless someone makes one that doesn't stick out as far. Yes its an outboard with notched transom. 1950 Pursuit CC and the one I bought is removable/ storable.

Don't really have a good picture will try to take one this weekend and post.

Thanks

Chris

Maybe one of these extended mounts would get out past the tabs

I used a Windline DLB-9 Breakaway Dive Ladder Bracket. When you forget to remove the ladder it saves it from being damaged.

I think it is a Dive N Dog brand. I think it the same mounting as Windline, Armstrong, or Garelick transom mount dive ladders.

Halfmoon, how did you get the trim tab controller that far up in the Windline DLB-9 bracket? I have the same setup on my boat and I am trying to replicate your installation. Did you mount the trim tab control arm through the Windline bracket or make new holes or something?

I strongly recommend that whatever you get, make it something you can deploy when swimming in the water, Major safety item regardless of what kind of boat.

It's not inside the bracket.
