boarding ladder

Post by Hanr3 » 11 Jul 2016, 22:47

I wanted something more permanent and I could use wearing coveralls soaking wet in 35 degree water. I fish as soon as the ice is off the lake. Morning air temps are low 30's and water temp isn't much higher. I wanted a ladder that will extend into the water and is secure. I may only get one chance to pull my butt out before hypothermia sets in.

In the folder up position the ladder is out of the water.

In the deployed position the bottom rung is about a foot below the water line and the second rung up is at the water line.
