    Ladder for a 42' Fountain??

    A buddy of mine is doing some work on a 42' Fountain and the owner wants him to try to find a ladder that will fit under the swim platform, preferably a telescoping ladder, and not show or interfere with the drives. Does anyone out there have any ideas?

    i used the ladder that they put on the donzies its white pulls out folds down three rung. but on my 98 42 with the big step bottom and classic deck, the hull has the relief in it for the ladders they install on the tall decks. but i do not have the hatch for ladder on top. so i cut a hole in bottom under swim platform made some aluminum supports to fit up inside swim platform and then used a round access hole cover the kind that twist in place to cover hole. i have also seen one of the fold down ladders aqua something mounted under swim platform ask owner how he attached he said he used what sounded like a swell nut. all the other ladders ive seen have been mounted on top and drilled straight through which idont like because clutters up the swim platform. good luck and the old post ladder that was a option that slides into place is a joke. that was the big ***** with the boat for the wife no easy way on once in water so i had to come up with something.

    Later, any pictures of your ladder setup?
    Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
