Description
In order to get as close to the boat as possible with the wheelchair the boat is backed in at its mooring. Mooring uses y booms. A platform built of pressure-treated pine rests between the Y booms closest to the dock.

First the user transfers to a teak platform attached to the swimming ladder (see associated tip) and then transfers down to the boat aft seat of the boat.
