I've seen a lot of talk about what to do if you fall into the water, so I am looking into a boarding ladder for my boat. Problem is, I have searched for ones that will work on my 1992 361v boat. If any of you have any pics of your older boat with a ladder, can you post some to give me an idea what I am looking for? Thanks

go around back and straddle the lower unit and hit the tilt up button on the side of the engine. once it raises you as high as it will go, climb into the boat. not the easiest way, but it'll work. i'm getting pretty good at using it to get back in the boat when wading. i've got a Po-Pole bracket on the stern of my boat and when the motor raises me up high enough, i can step onto the bracket on into the boat.

I put one of these on my 1988 Champion a few years ago. Mounts on two of the motor mount bolts.

I also added a couple of handles to grab onto to help pull myself into boat if using the ladder.
