You are right about the advantages. While at anchor or on a mooring if the waves are up you might find it difficult to enter the dingy from the stern where a side gate will be much easier.

Another option would be a side mounted ladder by the gate. Perhaps less of a project and I think there are advantages to side entry from a dinghy.

One thing I didn't really consider was what I would do about a swim ladder - the kids swim off the boat a lot (and the odds of me falling in are pretty good too!). My stern pulpit is complete across the transom. Would it be crazy to cut one segment and replace it with a lifeline that could be disconnected? It sounds kind of crazy as I type this but I'm not sure how else I would do this. Thanks
