12-1/4 inch step spacing
USCP APP 163.003/4/0
Lengths up to 160 feet
Eliminates "Rusty" Chain Suspensions


  • The COMAR/Mark/I Pilot Ladder replaces the obsolete old style "Jacob's Ladder" and eliminates unreliable marlin seizings (whipping)
  • USCG approved as a Pilot Ladder (up to 160 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 over a core of orange ultra strong to eliminate bounce and act as an early warning sign of wear (15,0000 lbs minimum breaking strength)
  • 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 4,000 pounds, i.e., more than twice the standard 2,000 pound test requirement

To Order, Specify:
  • Length (When calculating length allow for list – trim. We are happy to help by providing a free drawing to assist you when calculating length.)
  • "SOLAS" (V) No joints below the top step
  • Method of attachment (choose one)
    • Standard tie rope 10'
    • Optional rope, specify lengths

Replacement Step/Spreader, yellow in color, is designed to be replaced without unstringing your ladder- right onboard your vessel. Replacing a step is simple and easy, no special tools required.
