    3988 That cockpit step-gctid824863

    We LOVE our 2000 - 3988 but sometimes that step from the cockpit into the boat seems pretty big. I have seen some photos of 3988s where some owner have added steps. I am wondering if there is a place to purchase one with a flange that bolts down or if they are custom made. Here is an example photo.

    Looks like a home made step constructed out of 2x's, painted white and held in place with hook and eye on each side.

      I need to do something similar for our 3818. I gotta plan around the hatch though.

        I feel your pain and have purchased a temporary step that I found on line. It's ok for now; however, it's not wide enough and not as stable as I would like. I like what I see in the picture you posted and it does look like a custom job. Please let us know if you find a nice step that's available for purchase. I'll continue the search as well and will post anything I find. We may end up having to fabricate one.

          This is what I'm using for now but, as I mentioned, wish it was wider and, thus more stable.

            At TRAWLER FEST this year I toured a 3988 live-a-board with his home made step.

            I am planing on copying it this winter.

              I was thinking something similar, but using 1/2 inch starboard.

                Jeff,

                I was thinking white Starboard also; color matches the boat and no maintenance. Good idea.
