Folding Ladder - Universal Mount
Very sturdy ladder
If you're looking for a nice ladder for your bass boat (I've got the Pro Team 190), I'd recommend this ladder. It's sturdy.....but make sure you order the 2-step if you have the 2013 model with the "step" under the transom. I got the 3 step ladder because that's what I used on my old 17 Pro and liked it. That boat was seriously underpowered. I regret getting it for my new 190 because it sits below the planing level and sprays a stream of water up like a rooster tail when on plane. I wish manufacturers would let you know the difference in the product description for the application. I thought it was strictly a choice of convenience bit I find now it is otherwise. The 2-step would have been perfect for the 190. Too late now. It's mounted. I drilled and tapped the holes for 10-24 Stainless steel screws and used plenty of 3M 5200 Adhesive on the mounting plates. It's not only screwed but glued solid to the transom.

I have been looking for a ladder for my V-17 Tracker for 4 years now. Although I was impressed with this ladder when I saw it at BPS, I was somewhat apprehensive about this ladder because of what I read in other's reviews. Finally, I went with my first impression and purchased one. I have NO REGRETS! Some would say it is difficult to attach, some say it is not sturdy enough, etc. However if you take the time, install it correctly (or have a shop install it for you) you will be very pleased with the results. You supply your own attaching hardware. I used 4 stainless steel bolts with locking nuts to attach the top of the ladder (as this is where most of the pulling takes place). However, I did not have access to get a nut on the bottom bolts, Therefore, I drilled through the aluminum transom and attached the bottom part of the ladder using #12 stainless steel metal screws. It took about an hour and a half to complete, and, although I could do it much faster now, it was well worth the time to do it right. The kids have a safe way to re-enter the boat and I now don't have to worry about how to get back into the boat should I fall in while fishing alone. If you're looking for a nice looking, quality ladder that you don't have a problem with installing correctly, this is the one for you. I LOVE IT!

Great Little Ladder
Finally a ladder that will work on my 175 ProTeam Bass boat. Tried several portable types but NONE worked. Bought this 3 step folding ladder and mounted to Transom. Ladder has a 250 lb limit so even I can use it if necessary. Got 10% off price and free shipping. I'm very satisified with this product and would recommend to anyone needing a ladder for their Bass boat.
