Cool swim ladder. Did you build it out of PVC?

OK, Its been two years. Give us an update. Anything you would do different? I'm strongly considering this type of build down the road a bit. Love it 8)

Just about to wrap up our fourth season of boating on our C17 center console. We have had some great times fishing and exploring our home waters of Buzzards Bay in MA. The way the boat handles and the ride, even in the nasty chop we get here almost daily, still amazes me. I didn't really expect to stay so dry and comfortable in some of the conditions we have encountered. Our season is short up here in new england, and the water and air temps can make a wet ride very uncomfortable. The higher freeboard of this design is really great!
One thing that has been tough is trying to juggle all of the family and friends who keep asking "so when are you taking me out on your boat".
Finally got to take my younger brother out this weekend, and he had such a great time, he caught his first "keeper" striped bass....
and I was thrilled to catch a false albacore, man those fish are fighters for their size.
