Glad everyone is liking what they see.


No doubt this thing makes it easier to get in the boat. I can still climb in fine without it but it is easy peasy with the ladder.

I am working on brackets so these can mount on hard boats too. Give me a buzz if you have some ideas. Im kicking around a few things but haven't committed.

The retraction system has weight limits. Too many rungs and it gets saggy and less snappy up top. I have plans for a beefed up version for more rungs which is also in the works. The upper rungs may have to go to 2" instead of 1.5 to accommodate the system.

The 3 rung has pretty good reach. I don't know how tall your pontoon sides are but if you rig it a little low I bet it works fine. The 3 rung gets me up on 36" snout tubes no problem when the ladder is rigged 8-10 inches off the frame.

I ordered mine. I had to compromise on the color with the fam, but if I get #101 itís definitely all orange!

You will be the first green, blue, orange combo. I like the orange. I think my favorite is the blue or orange with the bottom rung in white.

I think santa is bringing me one too. Zack any chance he will still save $25 using the Buzz code in December? Are you close to getting a better lower rung spacer in production?

Have you considered a gunwale hook similar to the one boatbuckle uses? I am big fan of that system on drift boats (both aluminum and fiberglass). I would think that it would sufficiently support the load distributed over the gunwale of a human.

$25 code runs out at midnight. I might do another sale as we approach Christmas. If I do, it will be for available inventory. This is the only time custom color patterns will be included in a sale. If you want something besides a solid color, better buy up! Those all blue or orange with a white bottom rung are pretty sweet....

I'm still playing around with the pee prop. Haven't had a bunch of time to play with it lately. Trying to get orders out, including boats. There's still that. I'll have some time soon; one of my suppliers shorted me big time and I am on backorder for a couple parts.
