I have come across a lot of these aluminum mast steps from a friend they are brand new! they are 3/16 thick they weigh 5 oz. overall height is 12 3/4" profile from mast is 4 1/2". These will not cause a metal reaction on your aluminum masts. you install them with 3/ 16 alum. rivets. These are perfect for those of us sailors who don't want to go up your mast in a chair or for the single handed sailor. I have them priced at $10.00 ea. as they come, or for a little extra they can be powder coated white or chrome
Just want to report that I received a carton of 30 steps from forum member
dandkg and they just as advertised and seem a very good value. I always appreciate a smooth transaction and found that dealing with Dandkg was easy and I got more than I asked for - thanks Dandkg
BTW, I had read that using a pneumatic pop rivet gun was a big savings and Harbor Freight has one with good reviews
currently listed at $40.
