Yes! I hate those flimsy things! I bet everything seemed perfectly Ok then it suddenly scissored on you didn't it?

The flimsy wheels stick and either wear flat or dig holes in the dock, the handrails are hard pressed to support themselves ... I personally feel more secure walking on a 2X12 with a few laths tacked across it.

I spent a number of years working for a company that made large business jets and I would fly their owners around while their crews were in training or on holidays etc. One client had 14 yachts, ranging up to 200,' kept in the Mediterranean, Florida, Cape Cod, Illinois etc. One of his compounds had 5 houses, four of which were for his boat crews. They are not like us nor do they wish us to know that they are not.

One client had his yacht sent to a Greek Island. We flew him there to meet it but after a day we took him home again because the winds were too high for jet-skiing. They really aren't at all like you and me.

Ever seen a fender holder made out of 316, leather and sheepskin?

What else could they made with? Those things are standard yacht fixtures.

The cost of refinishing the cap rail because of damage from the fender lines or a cheap holder will buy a lot of those things. You can't buy them "off the shelf" either, they are custom made to fit the rail perfectly.

This one appears to be functional. You have to call to get pricing though. Yacht Stairs / Yacht Boarding Stairs - New Wave Fabrication

A 6 step was approx. $2000.
