    Default Swim Step/platform pics

    The wife wants me to add swim steps to the transom. It's a little hard for her to get in the boat in deeper water. I picked up two teak platforms off of craigslist and am looking for mounting suggestions. I have already had brackets made. I just can't decide if I want them between the side of the boat and the exhaust trumpet (pics 3 & 4) or over the exhaust and closer to the pump (pics 1 & 2). I can't center them in the transom because I have thru transom exhaust and the trumpet would be in the way of the bracket.

    If anyone has pics of their swim steps please post them up.

    TIA,
    Matt

    I have a 73 Sleekcraft Rebel and I used the swim step. I don't have any really great pictures, but here is what I have.



    It works great. I put it on 3 years ago for my wife and now I use it all the time. Hope this helps.

    can't get much closer than that. Right down to the Jazuzzi pump. Mine is a 74 Rebel. What are the two switches above your key for? I have two , one for bilge one for light but I don't see lights on yours.

    Looks like most have them over the exhaust. Guess that is what I will do.

    Outlaw, If my boat was nicer I would do that. This is a budget project. I picked up two teak platforms for $35 and a client of mine fabbed the brackets for free.

    Thanks for the pics guys.

    I love the billet as well but a little to much $$$ for this project. That and I kinda like the period look of the teak for this boat.
