Help! I need a folding transom ladder for aluminum boat

  1. I would like to hear recommnendations for type/brand/model of folding ladder to install on the transom on my 16' Starcraft alumimum deep V boat. Anything I need to look out for? Two step ok? It will serve two purposes: emergency return to boat in cold water and to climb back in after swimming or tubing infrequently. I don't have room or desire to carry over-the-side type ladder and won't do me any good if I go into the cold drink by myself.

    Here's what I'm considering. I'm leaning toward the first one below. Any advice or experience appreciated.
  2. I Agree with you on picking the first one in your list. The second one looks flimsy, and the third one is nice, but the supports do not look as strong on it compared to the first one, because they are flat metal where as the first one has tubing metal, ( i don't know if your a big guy or not, but i am and would feel more comfortable with the first one)
