Scandia Marine’s Sturdy Stainless Ladder Offers Safe, Easy Boarding and Quick Storage


ScandiaMarine250Scandia Marine Products has introduced a new dinghy ladder that utilizes their Patent Pending interlocking rung design. This all stainless steel ladder provides any dinghy user a safe and secure method of getting out of the water, in an easy to mount and store package.

Unlike other ladders, the Up-n-Out Dinghy Ladder has no hinges that need lubrication and no hollow tubing to gather water. It stores clean and dry.  Up-n-Out’s unique interlocking rung system makes this possible because it allows solid stainless rod to be collapsed or extended with no additional parts. It automatically forms a rigid structure that gracefully curves outward, underwater, away from the boat when deployed.

The Up-n-Out Dinghy Ladder simply ties to the inside of the dinghy and extends well below the surface so any swimmer can get a firm foothold without a high leg lift to reach the first rung. An oak handle is also conveniently and correctly located at the top to give the swimmer a firm grip while exiting the water. When finished, simply untie, push the rungs together and place into the storage bag.

Up-n-Out Dinghy Ladders come in two models designed to fit inflatable or hard-sided dinghies. Both models are available in the standard 2-step version or longer 3-step version.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
