That style of ladder will, I assume, be tilted up when underway? If so, rig a line holding it up that can be reached from the water with, for example, a slipped clove hitch so that, should you be out by yourself and fall in the water, you can yank the line and make the ladder accessible.
and tie a duck to the end of the line that drags in the water :)

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

You are correct! The ladder telescopes up inside itself and can also hinge upward and be secured to the Stern rail as you mention

If you want to be a problem, get a dog shaped log to drag. That will get people’s attention.

I have looked in both my books on sailor slang and did a quick search on the web for the meaning of your statement and can't find anything on it. What does "She got her topsides waxed" mean? :doh: :wink:

Your boat is looking very good!
