Does anyone have one of these? How do you like it?
So that's why we wear our inflatable vests.....What has me wondering is why the ladder is going out of production. If it is such a good and needed product, then there should be sufficient demand to keep making them. This isn't like marine electronics where new bells and whistles are added every year.
Last summer I had to pull a woman out of the water on to my RIB, it was surprisingly difficult (made more so because she wasn't my wife and I was a little more careful about what I grabbed). So my interest is based on experience and that my nearly septuagenarian body may not be able to launch itself back into the RIB if I part ways with it.

Have you ever jumped in the water with an inflatable vest? Once they inflate, you will rocket out of the water. The problem is that you may over shoot the RIB.How does that help one get back in the RIB?
