Boarding Ladder Tread
« on: July 02, 2001, 10:01:18 AM »

I am sure this has been covered sometime or someplace but we are tired of hurt footies on the boarding ladder.  We saw Capt Al's project.  We would like to buy clamp on teak or plastic flat treads for the steps.  Anyone have a source. Thanks How and Barb

I found the plastic ones at West Marine, But I caution you to make sure they are fitted on very tightly. I have had them get loose and caused folks to slip when they turned

They are listed in most marine catalogs in wood or plastic. Or make your own - keyholeing each end and secure from underside with U brackets.

Teak treads
« Reply #3 on: July 04, 2001, 11:53:13 AM »

I tried a few years ago to order teak treads from BOAT/US, since they had disappeared from the West Marine catalog.  BOAT/US said they aren't made anymore, which leads me to believe you may need to make your own.
 If anyone knows of a source for "premade" teak treads, please let me know.
 I also bought the Johnson marine "half steps" in plastic (ugly brown, yech!)  but haven't installed them, since we haven't been using the boat much for swimming recently.  
 I did get a one step ladder extender, which we did use successfully last year.  It pops on and off easily, and made boarding a lot easier since it puts a rung below the waterline.
