Ladder on a BF 200

Guys-

I am having a little trouble with getting people back in the boat after trying to tech them how to ski. The BF 200 has such a small platform. Wondering if anyone has added a ladder at all on the BF200 and how it works.

Any pictures or feedback would be great-

Not familiar with the exact dimensions of the platform on your boat, but some people have installed a 3 or 4 step ladder under their platforms to help get up. If this would fit on yours, that would be the ticket. See link

Had one of these on my old OB. Was still working great after 30 years when I sold it. Just enough step but not too much. The extension ones get in the way.

this thread might work for you, the platform if wide enough on the BF200 should take it.
