At our home slip we have wooden steps screwed to the dock. cruising we carry one of these Rubbermaid Commercial Products Folding 2-Step Plastic Step Stool with 300 lb. Load Capacity - Walmart.com
tied to a handrail so if it gets knocked off the dock we can retrieve it.
Flipping up would be great but as a liveaboard..... just not a guarantee they would be up at the right time.

I was to the point of taking them off at night. But they still got smashed and not before multiple times partially coming off and scratching the boat.

I got lots of compliments on their beauty and funtionality...but lost in the end to practicality...my usual trump card.
