What are your thoughts on building a swim/ dive platform that extends AROUND the outboard? I'd like to be able to have enough room to sit on the edge before dropping in. I'd also like to have a ladder that extends down about as far as the lower unit, and has hand rails up high.
One issue is weight.
Is there anything like this already on the market that can be attached to an existing boat? It would be OK if the ladder needed to be removed for stowage.
Also, while looking for ideas, I saw that Glastron boats have an extension ladder. I can't find one of these available for sale online. Anyone know who makes those or something like it?
