NWWB May 20th Meeting DIY Safety Ladder

Hi Gals,

Ideas for greater safety onboard has been an ongoing theme of many of our meetings. The May meeting offers you a valuable, and possibly lifesaving, opportunity.

Vivian Strolis and Julie Tallino will be demonstrating how to make a useful and affordable safety ladder. It’s a DIY project that anyone can do with a few simple tools and a sewing machine. The ladder folds up into a bag and is easily deployed by pulling on a tab. For many it could mean the difference of being able to get back on the boat. And what a great gift idea for another boater you care about. This safety ladder could be used on a boat or the dock (do the docks in your marina have ladders) or in the home. If you can come, Please RSVP to Vivian at nwwbviv@gmail.com or Marilyn at lkunion@aol.com

Vivian Strolis is creating the bag and Juli Tallino is building the ladder components. They will assemble the finished project during the meeting. This is a first time project and they hope the group will have comments and suggestions on improvements to the simple design. They will also provide printed instructions so everyone who wants to can build their own at home. We look forward to seeing all of you.
