A LEG UP

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

Q: Dear Boat Doc­tor, I’m hop­ing you can help me out or point me in the right direc­tion. While quickly try­ing to set up the fold­ing swim lad­der on our fam­ily’s 2000 Crest III pon­toon boat, we ac­ci­den­tally tossed it over­board. Un­for­tu­nately, we have not had any luck find­ing a re­place­ment swim lad­der. I’ve called Crest and checked on­line but have not had any luck. Any help you can of­fer to help us find a re­place­ment fold­ing swim lad­der for our 2000 Crest III would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Thank you.

A: First, try us­ing a grap­pling hook. You can make one, use a fish­er­man’s “bridge gaff” or even buy one for less than $20 ac­cord­ing to a quick in­ter­net search I per­formed. If you can’t snag and re­trieve your sunken lad­der, check out af­ter­mar­ket lad­ders such as those by Toon­mate, which are avail­able at Over­ton’s.
