I ordered the large (deep into the water) aluminum steps from PontoonStuff.com a while ago
part # AL-A5
They arrived well packed/undamaged and in a fair time

While they could have been mounted with the boat on the trailer I chose to do it in  the water Clap

This evolved my 12 volt inverter  and 110 volt drill.  So my buddy drilled the holes from on deck while I was in the water, between the pontoons (w/life jacket) with a 3/8" wrench taped to a length of bamboo and a prayer on my lips I wouldn't drop any of the 4 washers and nuts.

Install went well and boy was it nice under there.
It reminded me of doing outside repairs during a spacewalk on the Space Shuttle Wink

now to the product review
These steps could not be nicer
They are long enough to be deep enough in the water I had no trouble getting to stand on the bottom step - I'm 6'

With shorter steps I've had to bend at my waist and or knees to get onto that bottom step.
On the bottom step the water level is some 2" below the top of my swim trunks.

With the angle these are made it is more like climbing stairs than a ladder.

These are perfect for You / your Kids / your Parents. 

When you want to remove them (by tilting them up and above deck level) they are full of water and will spill that water onto your deck.  I drilled the plastic tube end caps with a few holes
to speed the draining of that water before it wants to spill onto my deck.

Order these steps today
and give you your old ones to an enemy   LOL

do all you can
as best you can
for as long as you can
keep the faith
&
keep on boatin'
'use to say:
keep on truckin'
