Has anyone figured out how to rig a ladder on a getaway to assist in getting back on the boat. Kinda tuff for some people to get back on.

One simply run a line from one of the wing supports to the other and let it drop to the bottom depth of the hull and then climb aboard, works well and not permanent. You use the wings to help you up. I used the anchor line.

Two a three step over the gunnel ladder on the front-sides. Works ok, but I was worried it would go through the tramps and stopped using it.

Third a rope/plastic rung ladder that I got from West marine that fits in the cooler and I just loop it at the front wing mount and all aboard.

Four is a pontoon boat ladder with the metal attachment bars mounted on top of the hulls just forward the main beam. Ladder stows on tramp. Downside is metal can cut foot if walked on. But absolutely solid.
