Rival 31

Boarding Ladder
Posted: 12 Feb 2010 - By: Tayrival
Tay Rival has a 'reverse-scooped' transom  - sloping the opposite way from all later Rivals. Is there a recommended boarding ladder for the R31 ?
She does have a wind vane steering device fitted and has therefore the small flat wood platform secured and projecting beyond the stern. Will that help or hinder the fitting of a boarding ladder ?

If I were to fit a ladder at the shrouds I imagine the ladder would be vulnerable when berthing in a marina / pontoon. However from April -October she is on a swinging mooring.  A rope ladder perhaps ?!
