Depending on dock height and configuration our lab either steps right onto the swim platform and up into cockpit or we use dock steps to enter midship port or stb. Steps are plastic or metal and can be standalone or attached to the boat. Check out marquipt or tracy international dock stairs or dock steps (quick google search should pick them both up). West marine also has simple steps often used by sailboats.
