This step is a saftey item for us and a convience. It will be nice at anhorage ifthe boat is pitching. With htis step getting from or to the dingy willbe much sfer. The stern steps would not work well in a pitcing situation we belive.
Aslso at a dock with out and stairs this will be a good means of getting on and off the boat. We have a folding step stoot but it is a reah with the foot to get off.
