For the past ten years, the usual way of getting into this boat from the water has been to heel her over until the gunwale is within jumping-aboard distance of the water. 50 to 60 cm (about 2') from the first rung to the waterline is usually deep enough, and three steps span this distance nicely. It's very important that any transom-mounted hardware stays clear of the prop at all times. Having used this particular ladder for a season, we've accidentally left it down at least three times. This particular one was from Princess Auto but I believe it may now be a discontinued model.
Since 2006 we have been providing an ever expanding collecton of free to use travel themed stock images. Swinging davits, trailers, and pitching guests mean the antenna for a small boat, such as this Zodiac RIB, need to be rugged while maintaining a low profile. On a tender or runabout, even the owner who wants the best possible performance is likely to be limited to the size of antenna he can realistically fit—the maximum is probably an 8-foot, 6dBi antenna.
For boats that are likely to have a real rough-and-tumble life, whether stored in a transom garage, launched with a swinging davit, or spending time on a trailer, it may be worth sacrificing communications performance for protection against damage.
When three major electronics companies roll out new radar technologies in the space of a month, there’s something going on. Grapeview Point Boat Works builds high quality small wooden craft that respect the values of traditional boat design, while incorporating modern materials and construction methods.
The resulting boats combine elegance and beauty with ease of maintenance, strength, and light weight. We are now building a modified Lake George Boat, based on the design of a boat in the Mystic Seaport Museum collection. Grapeview Point Boat Works’ boat designs are created by marine architects working in traditional styles that hark back as far as the mid-1800s. We welcome plans from other eras and architects, and would be happy to discuss them with you.
If rowing is your interest, how about a Peapod, Humble Bee, Lake George Boat, Rangeley Lake Boat, or a St. At under 8 feet, the Humble Bee is agile and manuevrable, making it a great option as a tender to a larger boat, or as a fun boat to explore your favorite lake or estuary. The petit Acorn will look great hanging comfortably from davits on the stern of your sailboat or powerboat. If you might have a companion aboard, the tandem MacGregor Canoe, also designed by Oughtred, is available decked or undecked, and with a sailing rig if desired. For socializing and sightseeing with a group of friends and family, the classically styled, ultra-quiet Zimmer Electric Launch is the perfect option.
4 or 5 have been built and a few stretched versions are on the verge.This is the original at 12 ft long and 4 ft wide.

Location: Alliston, Ontario, Canada If you click on user CP you can see if anyone has docked you points. 12'x 4' though it would be a lot more stable at 5' or better in beam, though it's efficiency will drop quickly.
This shape will handle chop and passing powerboat wakes much better then the floating shoe boxes others seem to enjoy.
The design above will easily out perform any of the shanty boat, box boat or square micro cruiser thingies.
Having said that i can once again assure you that you dont want to go that fast in a 12' x 4' (4m x 1.2m) boat.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. You'd then heave yourself up and sideways, a bit like mounting a bare-back horse, and with any luck would land on the seat cushions. Almost all small powerboats trim stern-down at rest, and it is much easier to climb a sloping ladder than a vertical (or reverse-sloping) one.
If it's much shallower, swimmers will have to curl into a ball to get their feet on the rungs before pulling themselves up- exactly the sort of awkward physical contortion we're trying to avoid.
While you'd never have swimmers in the water while the engine is running, it's quite common for the last swimmer to forget to fold the ladder back up. Many are not; the lesser ones often work for a while but are much more prone to fatigue and eventual failure.
Because it was mounted to be clear of the prop for all possible steering and trim positions, no damage was done. Marine Outfitters is another of our preferred vendors and they tend to have a few like this in stock. Some of the key contemporary designers include Iain Oughtred of the UK and Joel White and Doug Hylan of Brooklyn, Maine. This 16' boat can be rowed single or double, with or without a passenger, who gets to travel in style!
Designed by Iain Oughtred, it has a graceful simplicity and elegance, yet is a practical, stable vessel.
This 19'6" sailing boat can carry up to 6 adult passengers, or several adults and a couple of kids and gear.
Able to carry up to ten adults in comfort, it will travel at 5 kts for about 40 miles on a single charge. Careful attention to fit, grain direction, and species of wood result in boats that are long lived and beautiful. You would have to reshape the bottom which would preclude planing with a motor so you would be stuck maxing out at about 5 or 6 mph.
It looks like a boat, it has full standing headroom, requires very modest power and will leave a clean, unmolested wake.

You will soon see that you want to cruise comfortably with sitting head room under the cabin roof to escape the sun. Even if you're in good physical condition, it's quite difficult to heave yourself more than about 15 to 30 cm (6" to 12") vertically out of the water. Ladders aren't sworn enemies of propellers in the same way that rocks are, but don't push it by letting them share the same space.
Higher-rated ladders are usually welded from stainless steel, instead of bolted together with plastic brackets.
Fair use (quotations, etc.) is permitted as long as proper attribution and a link to the original source are provided. Whether designed for rowing, sailing or paddling, the greatest pleasure comes from a boat that is lovely to look at and a joy to use.
These are boats designed for optimal rowing ability or for use as a tender to a larger vessel. But you have to be fairly fit, with considerable upper-body strength, otherwise you just get stuck with one leg up on the gunwale. Someone who can't get onto a step 60 cm down will probably have trouble climbing a ladder anyway; if you or your crew fall in this category, you should consider wide, folding steps instead of a ladder. Simpler is better; you can get a telescoping ladder if you're really short on space, but you'll pay through the nose for a sturdy one.

Each has its own characteristics, so discuss with us what type of waters are in your area so we can help you select the most appropriate choice for you.
Say if you were looking at her from the side, she would look like her bow is flat (like your design) but on my design, her bow come to an edge and you can see that looking from the top. It's a fine arrangement if you're needs require the few things they actual offer, but your needs aren't as suited to a mud motor as you might think.
While that can be rather amusing for the rest of the crew, it is somewhat less pleasant for the swimmer.
Here, we're very tight on space (SC's beam is only 1.5 m) so the ladder-to-prop clearance is acceptable, but a bit closer than I'd like.
Like the Rangeley, it can be rowed single or double, and there are seats for passengers in both the bow and stern.
