Access for roof extension

A best friend of mine has a 34' Taiwan Sedan. He is planning on extending the roof line aft to the transom. He wants to make the access to the upper deck and FB via a ladder coming off the swim step as he "doesn't want a hole in his new roof". He's 72 years old and not the skinniest or most agile person anymore. His plan is to take the boat to SE Alaska for months of cruising. I have concern for his safety with this setup. Do any of my fellow trawlers have any experience with the setup he is proposing? Have you ever seen a setup such as this? Thanks, Tator
