Has Anyone Installed A Ladder On Their Boat? If So What Worked?


Aug 1, 2013
Hello everyone,

I just purchased a 2006 Mirrocraft Aggressor fishing boat. It is 16.5 feet long. I want to install some kind of a ladder on the back to be able to get in the boat if the kids go swimming or whatever. There isn't great access to the forward side of the stern of the boat for installing backing plates, etc... I was wondering if anyone has found and installed a ladder that works well in this application, or if not, I am open to any suggestions. I have seen ladders where you mount a smaller bracket to the back of the boat, and then the ladder attaches to the bracket only when you need it to. Seems like a possibility. Any help or guidance you can give would be appreciated. Thanks! Don Weaver
