    Default a rope ladder

    A 10 foot rope ladder hangs over the side of a boat with the bottom rung on the surface of the water.
    The rungs are one foot apart, and the tide goes up at the rate of 6 inches per hour.
    How long will it be until three rungs are covered

    If the ship has traveled from Europe to China....then yes the water level will change as the salinity of the sea water in China is differnent and the the ship will sit slightly differently.....just playing devils advocate!

    Is it a Health and safety approved rope ladder?

    Has it been recentley inspected?

    Have the crew of the boat been trained in it's effective use and deployment?

    Has the Ships Captain signed for it?

    If none of the above, you're off to court!

    What of rope ladder is it? what material is it made from? Are the rungs wooden or metal? Does the rope change length when wet?

    At the end of the day, why would you use a rope ladder when there is a jetty and a gangway to get you on and off your boat?

    What a strange question.
