New Dock Ladder

Living on the ocean creates an endless list of things that need to be repaired. It looks like nature has decided to retire the ladders on the dock. I knew they were aging, but it seems that once decay starts, the process goes into overdrive. Here is one of the rungs that broke, fortunately without injury.

I just ordered an aluminum replacement that can be pulled up when not in use to prevent seaweed and barnacle growth. Not cheap, but it should serve the purpose.
