Swim platform ladder

I want to replace my swim ladder with a telscoping ladder, preferrably under platform stowage. Can anyone recommend one that they have been particularity happy with?

Thanks Gordon

The Windline slide mount is a nice unit.

We have the same mounted under our stern platform. We also put a grab handle just forward of it on the transom which helps significantly when climbing aboard.

Second it.

Same ladder, same supplier. Parks is awesome to deal with.

I bought a Windline 4 step slide mount for Beach Music. Haven't installed it yet. Looks like good quality.

Gordon, why do you want to do this. I have thought of replacing mine because it flips up into the ladder up from the swim platform and the rungs interfere with your foot placement unless you drop the ladder into the water.

Fryedaze,

The current swim ladder is loose and cannot be mounted tightly. When moving at idle speed, the water from the port prop cause it to vibrate and knock against the swim platform.

Thanks David and Craig!
I have an earlier version of the Garelick that is twenty plus years old. It works well but the new design is lower profile and deploys and stores easier.
