I'd sure love to hear what other sport/super-sport15' ppl use to climb back in their boats with. I'm using a rope/polycarbonate ladder now, but would like to try another option too. I can't mount one on the transom; there's no room, and according to BW, there's no wood aft to anchor it to. I'm left with the over the side type.

JimH, what's on your sport?

In all honesty, the gunwales on my Sport 15 are so low that we just climb over the side.

The boat came with a "hook-type" over-the-side ladder, but we find it easier to board without the ladder. YMMV, of course. Good luck!

You might want to check the thread in Classic Whaler: Modifications of 7/10 started by "slriver" titled "Swim platfoem/ladder-Montauk" for some similar discussions...
As far as our family and our 15'SS, we gave up on ladders and hump it over the stern quarter...

Take a look a armstrong nautical's web site They have a line of ladders that would be perfect for a whaler,they have a small mounting bracket and look very easy to climb and they float.

Thnx for the site, Alioop, they are similar to ones available at W. Marine, boatus, etc.
I've decided to cease my quest for the perfect ladder until I see or hear from a SS owner that is totally satisfied, which is beginning to seem non-existant....
(Too bad you live so far away, BD, I'd like to try out your collection!)
