boarding ladder

Recommended Posts

 I have a 2018 R207.  Does anyone know who is the manufacturer of the boarding ladder.  I am looking for one with 4 rungs.   Thanks

Can you make one these work with the existing platform:

Hopefully, Robalo did not have a special size made for their boats.

Using Google, the standard ladder looks like Garelick  GAR-19676.  I would need a GAR-19677.

Have to get down to the dock and measure the size of the current ladder.

Thanks

Look at this build quality.  These are the bolts holding the boarding ladder.

Can you tell what the coring material is where the bolts come through or is it solid fiberglass? Were the nuts missing and only one was holding???

I would have thought they would have used larger fender washers to spread the load out somewhat.  The other thing that concerns me there needs to be enough thread on the bolt protruding through so the nut is fully engaged and at minimum, flush with the back side of the nut.  Looks like QC completely missed this one.

Nuts were missing from factory.  I have not unscrewed them yet.

That is not acceptable.  It is bad enough the installer did not do his job, but for the inspection to sign off as completed makes me wonder if this was done on a Friday afternoon.  You might want to at least let your local dealer see the pictures.
