Having people (and the occasional animal) get on the boat on the stern is a pain in the ass. We have winds, and the stern swings out a little, and yes there's step carved into the hull
but it's still tough, especially for seniors.
I'm considering changing the lifelines
to have an opening at the side of the boat, like the 450, and putting steps on the dock
Does anyone have any advice on this?
Is there hardware
to do it without changing the stanchions, that is, to just cut the lifelines
in half and add hardware
