Practical Boat Owner - - Practical Projects -

In my adap­ta­tion, I short­ened the hinge brack­ets and each now piv­ots on a bolt through a sep­a­rate piece of stain­less-steel chan­nel. One chan­nel is fas­tened to the cock­pit coam­ing and the other to the ver­ti­cal post of the stern gantry that sup­ports the davits. These pivot bolt po­si­tions are equidis­tant from the edge of the small tri­an­gu­lar deck, so that the lad­der is par­al­lel to the edge, and small brass chocks on deck and rub­bing strake pro­vide ad­di­tional so­lid­ity.
