Not perfect, but as close as I can get to it. The ladder, when deployed, maintains a 10 degree climbing angle so that the upper body is leaning forward toward the hand grips when exiting the water, particularly important for divers with equipment or seniors with less mobility. The steps are also angled that way and are wide enough even for tenderfoots like myself.

Finally, after all these years, a safe and comfortable completion of an MOB plan on a vessel notoriously difficult to re-board.

While sitting here on my recliner, where the maintenance crew would come to change a light bulb if requested, I'm inspired by these projects. My current pursuits are physically active, but without the creative planning and construction that comes with maintaining a vessel. 'so good to see these posts from my friends!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew
