    I am looking for a 6 step bow to beach ladder. I have looked around the Internet with no results for a Wesbar or Fulton brand but apparently they are discontinued.

    An alternative to consider. Buy a small 3 or 4 step ladder and store it in the cabin if you use it frequently or in the engine compartment if you use it occasionally.

    This is what I use and I really like it. You can drop it and retrieve it from the boat and it doesn't break if the boat is rocking. Sorry for the smudge.

    If you like it I will try to figure out where I got it. :thumbsup:

    Wow, this is some nice (red carpet) setup. I wonder what's the cost?

    Thx,

    lorenbennett,

    That is exactly what I am looking for. If you figure out where you got it I would appreciate it. I found a few places that used to carry them but don't anymore.

    Also if anyone has a used one for sale I would be very interested in buying it from them.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    I called the dealer (marinemax Grand Junction) were I got it and they are no longer available. It was a wesbar. I did find this I am not sure if it will work for you.

    Everyone likes mine, glad I got it when I did. Seems it was around $700 2 years ago.

    Thanks for taking the time to check into this for me. After seeing one last weekend on another Sea Ray at a beach I agree on how nice they are. I think I am going to keep looking and see if I can find a used one.

    Thanks Wesley, but when I click on "add to cart" I get a pop up window that says:

    "You are Unable To Add This Product To Your Cart! Please Contact The Store On Purchasing Information."

    I guess I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what's up, but I have a bad feeling it's the discontinued thing again.

    And yes Presentation, Half Off would be great with me!! :smt038

    I called Boaters Outlet today and the salesman said that they are indeed discontinued. He also added that he did not know why because they have sold hundreds of them. I also tried to contact the manufacturer and can not get a hold of a live person. Guess I'll keep looking.

    That's pretty much what they sell for people with cabover truck campers. Might try some RV outlets or camping world.
