On rare occasion go via the starboard gate in the railing stepping off the gunwale - but it is usually a LONG step down to the dock (3'). Had a female friend fall and hit the dock once disembarking that way at night (was too dark to judge the vertical distance to dock).

Here's the rear staircase.
Can you give me the manufacturer of the curved transom staircase please?

When moored bow-in the swim platform's a little hard to access, so we have a little two-step stool to get on at the boarding gate

These can be had from Ace Hardware for about $30:
Rubbermaid® Two Step Stool | U.S. Plastic Corp.

or, a similar item from West Marine. The two-step version goes for $190:


WEST MARINE Polyethylene Dock Steps at West Marine

Sure, I know, UV degradation and all that. I did fasten some sturdier non-slip feet to the version I have, but I can buy a half-dozen of the landlubber version for the cost of one "marinized" stepstool.

Being a yachtie snob and all...MY rubbermaid step stool is in black...the West stuff only comes in plebian white...scoff!!!!

Just as sturdy and a 1/4 or less the weight....

Anyone have any luck with one of these:

Latch Type Boarding Ladder - Garelick Eez-In



I have the hooks for these on each side, wondering if I should get one. If nothing else, it might be something to fasten the plastic hardware-store steps to.
