Hi
I am a new happy owner of a 385 (2015) and I need some help to solve some issues:

-Genoa furling line. I am looking for a reinforced area to mount a jammer at starboard gunwale. Looking at the plan of reinforced areas of the ship there is no one near the spi padeye despite I have seen some pictures from some H 385 with jammers mount in that area. Is the gunwale strong enough?

-Ladder
1) Stern fixed ladder. I used to sail single handed and I need a ladder to climb alone on board from the water (with the swim platform up). Has anyone mounted any fixed ladder in a H385 easier to use than emergency one?. I have read a topic about this in the forum but it is not clear to me how it is mounted.
2) Bathing platform fixed ladder. Has anyone put a fixed folding ladder bolted to the platform similar to the one the 388 mounts? Is any reinforced area?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Aguixo,

I had the same question about a jammer for the furling line. My dealer recommended to bond fix the jammer with short self tapping screws into the gunwale and use an adhesive bond between gunwale and jammer.

I have the same concerns about the stupid bathing ladder on the platform, especially in agitated seas it a PITA.
Once I tried the mickeymouse emergency ladder and came to the conclusion that I will always wear a life-belt. AFAIK there is no reinforcement in the platform.

It would be great if you would post it here once you have a solution.

Hello Aguixo and welcome,

I also own a 2015 385 and have dealt with some the issues you have raised.

I kept my boat in Greifswald for the first 3 years and asked the yard about adding a pad-eye to the gunwale as I was concerned that the plans do not show any metal reinforcement in the moulding.

They advised that the factory fitted pad-eys are simply screwed in with bolts.  I cannot remember what size they recommended but I took their recommendations and added a secondary pad-eye for my furling line which I use in conjunction with a Spinlock BRS 50 jamming block.

I use the factory fitted pad-eyes for larger BRS 63 jamming blocks for my asymetric spinnaker sheets which take a considerable load and have not showed any signs of stress.  

I added a handhold to the stern as the existing emergency ladder is unusable on its own since there is nothing to assist you getting out of the water and back on board.  This is a less that perfect solution but it would allow me to pull myself out of the water enough to get hold of the pushpit rails.

I think that adding a fixed swim ladder the the stern platform would not be as neat as on the newer "8" series boats which have a recess in the platform for this purpose.  I suggest you get used to the boat before doing anything about this as I believe you will find this a useful area to sit / stand and a ladder would obstruct this use.  The removable ladder is not that much trouble (and I swill from the boat whenever possible).  You might find you can store it in the life-raft compartment, although I have clips and strap for mine in the the aft locker by the door from the galley (single aft cabin version).

I also use two

Here is what we have on our 2012 385, but it was already there when I bought the boat in 2016. I will check next time and see if I can determine how it is mounted. It has always seemed rock solid. 
As to the swim platform, I actually like the fact that we don't have the ladder built in. Having seen the 388 in person, I would worry about twisting an ankle in the dark while stepping around and on the hardware. I do like to keep a Wichard emergency ladder hanging off the boat whenever I am on board as a back up to the fixed emergency ladder.
