Default Dive Ladders

I was wondering if anyone knew of a Company or local shop who can design fabricate a Dive Ladder for a Center Console boat to replace that flimsy ass retractable swim ladder?

I would like to use my 270CC for Diving / Spearfishing as well as conventional Fishing, however I don't like the idea of having to completely gear down to climb back in the boat and then haul everything over the gunnels.

Any ideas .... I have seen some over the side designs but not really wanting to bolt anything to the rails.

Thanks

The stern of your boat will determine if it will work take a snapshot of the stern.

Best factory ladder made:

Aluminum fabricators can make a really nice one also!

Steve @ Mechanix Marine (Milton/Pace), does excellent work as well if you need to adapt factory ladder to your boat

Dive Ladders-image-jpgThanks for the tips guys. I have been looking at some of the online solutions and may go with some kind of stand off bracketry. Trim tabs are also right in the way of any kind of straight down solution even the factory swim ladder will break a toe if your not careful! .... I like your setup sealark, don't think it would work on mine though.

I have to figure out how to post pics from my iPad ��

you are screwed for a stern ladder, at least in my opinion. Someone may be able to design one. A removable side ladder might be your best bet.
