    We are in the process of that (building a custom) ,but without a bender and a way to weld the aluminum, we are looking at modifying a hang on tree stand. Where we need the ladder it is at an odd angle of the boat, but before I proceeded I thought I'd ask the RTF community.

    Kwiklabs, does the one you posted have adjustable legs on the bottom side, that rest agaisnt the boat ?

    I've been using the one by Gator Trax for abou 10 years. It's simple, extremely well made and works.

    "Kwiklabs, does the one you posted have adjustable legs on the bottom side, that rest against the boat?"

    No, the ramp bracket is specifically welded to fit the gunnels. Once mounted the ladder is very stable and smoothly rotates up or down depending on the water depth. However, it cannot be removed without significant, reverse rotation. The design is probably not anything like you are looking for.

    What ever you come up with, I don't like expanded metal for the platform. Dogs can get toes cough in the gaps.

    Does anyone know of a dog boat ladder available for a 23ft. sportfish with twin outboards?
