well at least this lady makes it look easy. I think the folks on this board are pretty savvy but I have to say this lady has got mad dinghy skills ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7FZL3Conqg

That's one heck of a trick. Impressive!

My favorite dinghy ladder belongs to Reef Song. Kim, I wasn't sure who made it so Thank you. It's awesome!

LOL ... That is about the coolest (though not particularly graceful) thing I have ever seen. People are so inventive!

That is a must try just for the sheer giggle factor. What a cool ab work out on vacation!! The dunk and kick still works for me but having an additional totally ungraceful way to enter a dinghy is never a bad thing.

I'm going to have to have rotator cuff surgery just so I can try that "dinghy mount".

Hi Kim,

Do you happen to have a pic of your ladder? I need to make something up for our trip in May...

Thanks!
Tom

For a dingy ladder I bought a Sea Step it works great for getting into the dink while shorkeling

I have bad shoulders, and quite a bit of excess 'baggage' so climbing aboard the traditional way is no longer in the cards.
I'll have to try this!

Wow, that's amazing and funny! Can't wait to try it. One of the things we test near the big boat is that we can still get back in the dingy but the last few years we've had fins on, that helps. Not a problem if there is a beach close but somewhere like the caves at Norman those of us that seems to be aging/gravity challenged it's not a sure thing.


Life involves risks, take some prudent ones (NOT with the BVI ferries)!
