Folding bow ramp in accessible boat
– allows easy access for wheelchair users
A folding 90 cm-wide bow ramp at the bow of an accessible boat. The bow ramp is operated by remote control from the boat or the dock and is adjusted against the dock or pier, making it easy to go onboard or ashore.
The bow ramp can be folded down during the trip and make it easier for a person who uses a wheelchair to fish, see associated tip.
