    Is the stainless steel boarding ladder a good option over the standard ladder?

    We are building a 23 SSX with extended aft deck in dual stern gates.

    Thanks

    Love the stainless, tucks up out of the way nicely and finishes off well. That said I never used the standard unit.?

    Is the stainless ladder the optional curved ladder? One in the same?

    Love our stainless. We just wanted that cleaner look that it gives you.

    I had the fold up ladder on the first boat, and the SS tuck-a-way ladder on this one. I love the look. It's also easy to use, but no better or no worse than the folding ladder. It's all about looks on this one for me.

    Like others have said, functionally they both work. But the stainless ladder looks way better in my opinion.

    I think the SS looks a lot better, but I like the climbing in and out angle a lot better on the standard ladder. With our blackout package, we went normal curved. With it blacked out, it actually adds some flare to the back, and has a better climbing angle. If we had not done the blackout package, we may have went with the SS ladder for the looks.

    Amazing how every little decision on an order becomes such a big deal. We deliberated on so many things ourselves. So worth it once you get it though... Good luck with your decision!
