      Comments about Dockmate Telescoping Drop Ladder With Plastic Steps, 3-Step:

      We absolutely love this ladder. We just wish we would have bought it sooner. I was diagnosed with RA this past year and really struggled to get in our boat after a swim. My husband had to help me with our one step ladder that wasn't stable. We ordered this 3 step ladder and was amazed at it's stability and ease of use. It will be nice for the grandkids next summer. The easy stowaway with the telescopic steps is awesome.

                  A:

                  This type of ladder is designed to fold up and be stored on the swim platform when not in use so it may not be the best fit for you type of boat. If you want a permanent mount ladder on the transom you may want to consider a platform ladder such as item 26014. Another option is item 23044. We hope this helps and please call us at 1-800-334-6541 if you need further assistance.
