When you hit the lake (or wherever you’re sailing), there are some “musts” that you, as a boater, require to fully enjoy the water. Coolers full of beverages, life vests, and fishing equipment are some things that come to mind. You don’t want to forget any of them or your day is either ruined, or you’re heading back to dock to pick something up. So, what is something that might really ruin your fishing or boating trip if you didn’t have it with you? How about a boat ladder? It would be like forgetting your tent when camping.
Imagine it, you’re out on the water, the sun is shining, waves are…waving, and your family is smiling and happy in your new tri-hull Water Cutter 5000. Suddenly your sister playfully pushes Uncle Richard into the water while you’re three miles out in Lake Michigan. Everyone laughs. He sputters and laughs as his favorite hat with the weird fishing lures floats away. He swims to the boat to climb back in and when he gets there; no ladder. What do you do? He’s just out of reach and you forgot your people hook back at the apartment. Either you toss him a rope and drag him back to shore, or Uncle Richard takes up his new job as a buoy waving to passing boats in the shipping lanes.
While that is a silly scenario, it illustrates a larger point. When you need it, and don’t have it, that “thing” you need becomes crucial. In this case, a boat ladder is the crucial “thing”. Whether you like swimming outside of the boat when you get to your “spot” and drop anchor, or something happens accidentally where you must get in the water, you will want a ladder with you.
