Dive Ladder for 266 Hull

Postby raduray » Wed Jun 06, 2018 12:01 pm

I'm thinking of adding a dive ladder to my 266 LC and am wondering if any of you with a 266 hull have done that and if you have any pictures.

Hmm, that's interesting. I have an Armstrong ladder that's similar to what you have. I hadn't considered just adding handrails, but that may be a good enough inexpensive solution. Do you have pictures of the mounting points for the hand rails?

The picture I posted is the best one I have right now. I'll try to get you a better photo this weekend.
If you zoom you can see two of the mounting pads. The welder fabricated the square mounting pads to fit the available mounting surface on the swim platform. The rails are through-bolted and secured with 5200, very solid.

Here's a different idea. Any reason why an aluminum pontoon boat folding ladder wouldn't work? Specifically thinking of this one: http://tinyurl.com/ycxgh85p
