Since 1946

  • The COMAR/Workboat Ladder replaces the obsolete old style "Jacob's Ladder" and eliminates unreliable marlin seizings (whipping).
  • USCG approved as a Workboat ladder (up to 250 feet).
  • Steps are secured to side ropes using stainless steel fasteners and patented COMAR Wedge Assembly.
  • Rope: 2-1/4' circ. (3/4' dia) 3 strand soft feel polyester rope with an ultra strong core of a color that contrasts with the polyester to ELIMINATE BOUNCE and act as an early warning sign of wear (14,000 lbs minimum breaking strength). All our ladder ropes are manufactured by SAMSON: "The Strongest Name in Rope."  
  • Steps: Made of buoyant high impact safety orange impregnated elastomer. Steps are resistant to ultra violet light and are constructed with internal tubular and patented internal collar reinforcement. The top of each step has a raised diamond pattern coated with non-skid abrasive grit and set back from the edges to eliminate cutting of the hands while rigging the ladder on deck or a novice accidently grabbing the step.
  • All steps, assembly hardware and rope are the same with all COMAR ladders 
  • Ladders are tested at the time of assembly with a force exceeding 2,000 pounds.
