I only ski behind my boat so I wouldn't know if it does or not.

powde877 what did you use for the spacer to get ladder to be below the lip of the platform?

Thanks

Update on the slotted platform install. It has worked well and aged well. No issues with the install and I would do it the same way all over again complete with counter sinking and polishing the heads of the SS carriage bolts.

Found this thread as I'm getting told my boat is just too hard to get in and out of. I'm a bit reluctant to put holes in my nice teak platform so I might have to come up with a starboard or some plastic type to but between the ladder and the teak just to keep the install invisible. Anyone do anything similar lately?

Ladders are nice. I have one on one of my platforms. So here's another consideration with the ladder...

Climb up the ladder (mine is a four-step retractable) and there you are...standing on the first rung from the top. Now what? You still have to make a 90 degree transition from the ladder onto the board. It's not as convenient as one may think. I swapped platforms to one that does not have the ladder. More trouble than it is worth to me. I just man up and climb on the board with the boat's grab handle.

I have holes in my solid board where the ladder goes. That's about all you can do for any resemblance of structural integrity. Or maybe you could hang a pontoon ladder over the side.....

Thanks Waterlogged!

I know what you're saying but mine doesnt even have a grab handle. I got the ladder cheap off amazon so I'll make sure I like it before I drill any holes
