Default Swim Platform Ladder

The location of the Windline 3 step telescoping ladder is a PITA. It is mounted so that when stored it does not protrude past the swim platform's rub rail. The only problem with that is when it is down for use it is too far up under the platform. Has anyone changed ladders or made modification to make accessing the ladder easier?

BE really careful. There are nuts on the bracket that hold the bolts to the transom[ATTACH][/ATTACH][ATTACH][/ATTACH] on. It was put together prior to the swim platform being put together

Correct, each side has four bolts w/nuts. I can reach the nuts easily from inside the engine compartment. I can move the mounts back about 3 inches to provide easier access but it will protrude past the swim platform when stored. I have a new ladder and considering having a fab shop extend the short leg (horizontal section when closed) 3"
