Krogen Manatee owners question

Hey guys. I'm currently rebuilding the single step area from the bow to the pilothouse level and wondered how you felt about the size and safety of these steps. I've never fallen, but I've stumbled a few times when stepping down to the bow. I've got some good, old forest, heavy teak board that I could use to build bigger steps. All the glass work underneath is done. A larger step would require some easy modification of the area below to support the edge of the step, no problem. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this? Here's a photo of the repaired step area with the original teak board just laying in place. The larger step I have in mind would be half again as large. Thanks for any feedback.
