Thanks for the compliment. Added a couple of more coats of teak oil.
I also had added a couple of extra teak supports for the ladder installation.
Here's the ladder installed and in its retracted position. You can see the stainless carriage bolts that had to be added.
Here it is deployed. Three steps and deep enough to aid our older guests in getting back on board.
Side shot of the deployed ladder. It sits at a nice angle when deployed so you are not climbing straight up.
Can't wait to get the boat back in the water and give it a try... Pretty happy with how it turned out, considering that a ladder on a ski boat is not really typical. Should make the family outings with the older relatives much more enjoyable.
