Just curious does anyone have a photo of what the gang plank would look like that would have attached to the side entrance to the bridge on a 1968 era ccc 42?

Hope these will help

They're usually aftermarket, mostly by marquipt going under the brand "tide rider" they make boarding ladders and stairs. Slight chance it may have been a factory option, but much more likely something added by a former owner. I doubt there is a "right" mounting point, although the pics above make sense for lining up with the ladder to the bridge deck.

When these boats were new this wasn't a problem yet, floating docks hadn't become popular. When I was a kid everything was wood or concrete docks and you never had a problem getting on/off unless you had a small boat then you had to scramble up. But since the 1990s everything has gone floating, and getting on and off a big boat is a hassle without these.

Fair warning get ready to bend over and put a stick in your mouth, these silly stairs are about $3k. Thank goodness mine came with the boat.
