Once you are securely anchored, it is important to be able to get quickly and safely get in and out of your boat. Many vessels don’t have the luxury of a swim step, so to solve this dilemma Slide Anchor has developed the Side Step Boarding Platform. The Step Platform transforms virtually any location on the side of your boat into a boarding platform, creating an easy way to get in and out, whether while floating offshore and swimming, or beached, the Step Platform gives you and your children a way in and out of the boat away from the hazardous engine and prop. Simply adjust the line to the desired height, and the extendable suction cup legs to the contour of your hull, no mounding hardware necessary. Folds flat for storage and is available in light weight diamond plate aluminum or solid three quarter inch teak.
