Well, we bit the bullet and ordered a set of the stairs from Stainless Outfitters. I will let you all know how they turn out, with lots of pictures!!

Will it be the generic one or a custom build?

These are generic stairs. Apparently the same as what Al's Marine sells. (they sell to Al's if my memory of a conversation is correct).

Got a voice mail this morning. Stairs are done and being shipped on Monday. Should have by Thursday. Will post the unboxing and then when we have them installed on the boat. Happy Valentine's Day Doug!!

If you don't mind posting the total cost, that would be great. I want to do the same but I have plans to replace the swim platform and don't want to install the stairs twice. If the new platform ends up at a different height, that might be a problem to the top mounting hardware.

I don't have a 3607 anymore, but that sounds like a great addition to the boat! Another improvement would be a bigger swim platform.

Can't wait to see your pics!! I'm excited for you!

I just might bite the bullet too and get it now, then re and re it after I get a new platform. I don't have to pay for shipping as they are about 20 minutes away from me! :down:

It's a really good deal for you KM, that works out to about $5 US ;-)

The stairs arrived!!! Not sure when we are heading to the boat to install, just a tad cool here (-30C with windchill -47). I will take photos of the process when we do get there, but here are pictures of them in the boxes. The long one is the stainless handrail and center post.

Ya you don't want to be caulking at those temps. Check the label on the product.
