John Boor's ladder on Mahseer

I built this myself from 1in stainless and wooden steps. The width of the ladder was determined by the wooden steps. Photo 1 shows the 4 point attachments to give lateral stability.

Photo 2 shows a curved top to allow better access for hips.

Photo 3 shows the ladder extends about 3ft into the water, this is great when you are tired. I use a lanyard attached to the bottom section for lowering and retrieving, the line is wrapped around the tubing only to allow lowering the ladder if you happen to fall in.

My favorite Chesapeake Bay guidebook. While it mentions marinas, it concentrates on anchorages—the kind of places I prefer to spend my time. And in addition to listing shore facilities, it rates each location for Beauty/Interest and Protection. This is the guide you need to really cruise the Chesapeake Bay—a smorgasbord of small creeks and coves.
