On the subject of rope ladders, I have a narrow, all rope one, steps are only big enough for one foot. I've used it as an emergency re-bording ladder, trailing a cord so you could pull the ladder down if you fell off the boat.

Pretty darn hard to climb though, need a lot of upper body strength.

A friend gave me an old rope ladder with teak dowels for rungs. Much easier to climb with rigid rungs, but still presses into the hull, so, it's kind of hard on bare feet.

The fold-up style ladder Bud is talking about is going to be a much better option.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
