Yeah, that's what I am thinking will be the best solution as well. A fixed depth 4-5 step T-style ladder, maybe even sealed aluminum box tubing so it almost floats when not in use, that can just be raised and secured vertically for transit and then removed for storage. I think I will also need to have an additional hand hold fabricated as there really isn't anything to grab back there ...

Now to find a trusted fitter / fabricator....

What about the T top guy on this forum? I think it's breeze fabricators. I'd pick his brain for a bit

Default Ladder

Where is your boat. Ill look at it and recomend a design or premade product. Have built hundreds of small platforms/ladders.

It is over on the Westside of Pensacola. I won't be home for a couple of weeks, but I will get the wife to get in touch with you to check it out.

Don't really want a platform per say, was hoping to be able to fabricate a mounting plate using the existing OEM location. Extend a little aft to clear the trim tabs and then about a 4-5 step T-ladder with an attached folding brace back to hull for stability. Something strong enough for say 400lbs? I think an additional grab rail somewhere also .... May be able to fabricate something removable using the aft port rod holder as the base?

Anyway, I would like to get this done for sure. So I will have her get in touch.

Thanks

No problem. I have seen that extension coomercially manufactured. They allow a " pompier" or t stlye ladder to extend far enough off the transom to clear trim tabs ect.

If you use an Armstrong ladder with bracket only it might work. Although this photo shows a small platform I think you could reasonably attach just the Armostrong bracket to the boat (with or without some kind of standoff) and be able to fold the ladder up & down.

Might be something to consider.
