WAG Boarding Steps™ Model LM-6
If you have a dog that goes hunting or fishing with you, but you struggle getting him/her back in the boat after they jump in the water, then WAG Boarding Steps Model LM-6 is the solution for you and your dog.
WAG Boarding Steps Model LM-6 is a set of steps designed to mount over the gunwale or transom lip of fishing or jon boats. The patent pending design incorporates reversible hooks to mount over the top edge of the gunwale or transom and has independently adjustable struts to accommodate different hull shapes (angle/curvature). The 6-step design provides a vertical rise of 24" (bottom step to lip) to work effectively in locations with no more than 16" of freeboard. The 4" deep, flat steps with integral toe plate and 4" step height is suitable for dogs of all sizes and have a slip-resistant top surface. The "space-frame" design results in high open areas in all three directions to minimize the force and effects of surrounding water currents. They feature a collapsible design for transport and storage (approximately 42" L x 18" W x 5" D).
To work effectively, the mounting location should have:
- a lip width of no more than 3-1/2"
- a flat lip section at least 15" wide
- no obstructions inside of the boat within 3-1/2" of the top of the lip
- a freeboard (distance from top of lip to water level) of no more than 16" (less is better for bigger dogs)
WAG Boarding Steps Model LM-6 have a capacity of 130 pounds and are designed for dog use only. They weigh approximately 8 pounds and float, if dropped in the water. Steps are available in safety yellow, marsh grass tan or oak moss green. On safety yellow units, the aluminum struts and rivets are clear satin anodized with polished stainless hardware. On marsh grass tan and oak moss green units, the aluminum struts and rivets are black with black oxide stainless hardware. The design of the unit is conducive to camouflaging and can be painted, if desired.
