Here are the ones that the PO had made (I think) for my Tsunami. Pretty slick.

It was probably custom milled out of aluminum stock. Itís very easy to shape on a bench grinder, die grinder or end mill.

Iíd like to see some more pics of the joinery and details. I was kind of toying with how to make this already. I see the value in having one on my boat.

You able to post more pics basketcase? Looks like 2 layers 3/4Ē plywood.
I really like how it collapses down. I was thinking about making it to fold flat somehow but this would be easier.

Pm me basketcase and I can send my number. I assume we donít have access to former builder. That is well within my capabilities to build.

Here is the link to a post from my boats previous owner. He mentions that the builder was from this page.

Wow, that's an old thread! Seems like a good design if still functioning now - 10 years later.

Yeah good read there. The question of the female anchor of the hinge is the question now. But great pics of joinery. I’ll toy with hardware and design over next couple days.

After a little hunting I found this.

Those are ronstan 32 clips in the rails clips alone are 72 ea but would be moveable on a rail. I’m not suggesting those but maybe a fixed d ring something like this
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HCN2Q2Q...GFYFKRTK53NPH8
Marine Grade Stainless Steel 316 Heavy Duty Diamond Pad Eye

I just hate that you will need 2 sets installed (port and stbd) and 1 for hatch. It’s so grainy I can’t make out how the originals mounted in the catalog.

Still hunting but boarding ladder hardware seems pricey.

Now that I've seen it I can make it. The only thing I would add is some kind of latch or stop that would prevent the ladder from folding while climbing it.

Not needed. Once it's locked into place, it cannot fold.
