How to use "Sea ladder" in context?

Isabella of Castile's sea ladder was one of the first technology concepts to use a series of connected steps or ladders to allow people to cross large bodies of water. Her ladder was built in the early 1500s and used two sets of steps connected by a central beam. The ladder was used by Isabella to cross the Atlantic Ocean, and was later used by Spanish conquistadors to cross the Pacific Ocean. The sea ladder is also thought to be the inspiration for Christopher Columbus's ocean voyage.
