Finished rescue ladder

It is too hard for a small person to get the supplied ladder out of the engine room and fix it on the bulwark.

This came to mind after watching a much older couple trying to get back on their sailboat even with a stern ladder!  

Only thing I would change is to make the tubing a little smaller. But it fits over easily and it all stores in lazarette.  $89 at local steel fab.

Swim Step on Easy Goin II

Last year I put a boarding ladder on Easy Goin II. It was never Equipped with a boarding ladder from the start. All our boating is in Lake Huron/Georgian Bay with lots of swimming, so boarding ladder was very important to us. I am very pleased with the results  I purchased a Garelick 6 step over platform telescoping ladder. See pictures.

Hurricane Isaias

Victory was securely attached to the pier with extra lines but they were not needed. The winds were very localized down here; a few miles south of me trees were down but luckily we did not have any major damage.
