Bass Boat Ladder
Perfect for older tri-hull boats!!
This ladder fits perfectly on the gunwale of my 1985 Thundercraft. I had the 4 leg 11" hook ladder and it would try to slip off the gunwale when someone was climbing aboard and people had the potential to get injured and not to mention it would float away when we weren't paying attention to it. This ladder holds perfectly to the side like it was made for it. It actually takes up less space and never floats away. The only modification that I did to it in order to fit my boat perfectly was where the little fold out bumpers are it only had two adjusting slots where it sits against the boat side. I cut the end of the bumpers off about 3/4" where they insert in to the ladder. It probably would have worked fine the way it was, but now the ladder sits perfectly straight against the boat. Before I found this ladder I about mounted a transom ladder, but I was afraid it would get in the way of the outboard motor when steering.

not for bass boats
I purchased this product and it does not work on Bass Boats, I have a Tracker PT160 and it cannot be used on the sides of the boat, the ladder pushes against the side of the boat and the angel it is at, it is almost impossible to use.
The only spot I did find it could be used was next to the motor, but then you have to worry about the cables for steering the boat.

Waste of money
Used on my Fisher bass boat and does not work.. The arms that go against the boat are not long enough. The ladder goes in so far against the boat that it is at an angle when getting in. The arms need to be longer and the hooks that go over the gunwalls need to be not so wide. Wishing I could get my money back.

Works on my Bass Tracker
I had to mount the supports in the holes that allow it to be used on the side near the front of the boat, but thats OK with me. It supported my son who is 180lb.
