Does anyone have experience with Armstrong style boarding ladders on a Montauk. Any ideas on how/where to mount on the stern. Also, where do you store the ladder when under way? Is there a better style? Thanks for the help.

Talk to the manufacturer. I took a good look at their product at the Miami Intl. Boat show in February... They offer a mount design that will hold the ladder in place in an upright position while underway. With a twist it comes off for trailering and docking.

I have no affiliation with them, although I do work in Stuart Florida... Funny thing is, its cheaper to buy their product through a retailer, than to drive to the factory. Of course, that's typical.

Saw one of these ladders mounted on a boat today. Looked like a dog with it's tail straight up in the air. Really funny looking when running across the grass flats. Also looked real good for catching fishing lines.

My father mounted his ladder on the side of his Montauk between the end of the bow rail, and the start of the aft side rail. It was relatively easy to through bolt it to a backing plate, and it had the added benefit of not having to climb over all of the engine components (lower unit, battery, oil tank, steering). That placement of the ladder also allowed you to grab the rails for extra pull to get out of the water.

Outrage man...Curious as to docking. What happens if a wake slams the boat ladder? Is it removable? Reason being, I was thinking the same thing if only mounting plates were left after removal.

Yes the whole ladder assembly removes except for the mounting plate. And if you mount the plate high enough, the rub rail sort of camoflages it.
