You're an innovative man Ron. I trust that if you wanted a bigger spacer you could make it happen. My thought wasn't that you could get a whole hand in there but that you had the separation you needed to grasp. I think you'll find that you do. The plan is that nothing can unintentionally get snagged in there. I thought the 1/2" spacer rode that line erring on the side of safety.
I might be innovative but spring loaded yo-yo devices aren't my specialty. I learned that trying to mess with a garage door opener. After all I thought "I can do this". Luckily, I still have 5 plus 5 and a flat forehead.
The idea of more space on rung one was not an "innovation" on my part. It was Peg instant first comment. "Oh, does this make it easier for me to pee off the boat". Sometime it takes someone else to puts things in perfect perspective. After instantly considering possibly many fewer rows across bitch'en eddies to find a landing for said purpose and then possibly spinning a quarter mile up stream perhaps during an upstream gale before being able to get back in current,,,, I said, "Yes dear!". ZACH, help me make that true.
So, this idea is not for benefit of "Rapid-Rung" but is for a "Lady-Rung", "Miss's Rung" or "Make-my-life-easier-when-Peg-is-not-kayaking-Rung".
I think what it would require is more space above rung one so that a foot probing from above could find it. Short of me convincing my SO that we are perfecting a product (and having pee all over my boat pad) help me think through what is necessary. Fewer rungs??? Bigger spacer??? Please, act it out and tell be what is necessary? Ah, forget I suggested that. But, I'd do it myself if not for the fact that my big boats are under tarps.
