Loking for the plastic clips that lock the ladder in the UP position at the hinge.
Also looking for any of the mounts that mount the aluminum poles to the hull.

The ladder i picked up a few months ago off a later model (87-88) cv23 needed some work.  Mine doesn't have the plastic keeper clip,  the swing step just raises up then drops down into a groove.  As for the bases just look for round 60 degree.  I just bought 4 new ones in stainless.  Here are the ones i bought... Ebay number.......383553359915

Could you tweak the ladder with a conduit bender to match or consider plastic/Teflon/aluminum spacers the correct the angle to fit?

I bought 2 from West Marine. The angle is correct but the bottom 'center' hole is off by at least 3/8" off center from the original.
Still looking for the plastic clips that hold the ladder up.

Also, can anyone direct me to a video or give me some help as to how to fill the holes in the hull so that I can drill new ones.

Can you post a picture of your ladder? I am very curious about the clips as I have not seen one with them.

The clips they are talking about are the ones Dave had someone make several year back.

Made batches of these clips back in 2008 to fix the broken ones that came with the 1987 CVX-16. Wish I had made more. Machined from nylon block that required about 5 cuts.
