    Default Can anyone please identify this swim step?

    The left swim step on my Rogers looks like it got hit pretty good before I bought it and it's always bugged the hell outta me. It's beyond repair and I'd like to replace it this winter. I took a picture of it. I've been looking on the internet for some time and haven't been able to find one like it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Eddie marine bought all of the pattern's from the rail company that was in Costa Mesa not sure if they are still making them but will help you match it up.

    Been looking for these exact steps for years. Never got a lead on them other than the shop in costa mesa that did them went out of business. The news involving eddie marine is new to me. Keep me in the loop if you find out any info.

    it took me a bit, but i dug up my thread that had some history on these steps...

    http://www.performanceboats.com/pb-o...wim-steps.html

    i had 2 other "wtb" ads in the parts section, but rendered nothing but people telling me to make them myself. My buddy is a fabricator and i have another buddy who has a wood shop he kinda inherited from his grand father that knows a little bit about wood work. Maybe I can get a set or two made.

    @ greg: Thanks for the lead. I will call them after the holidays.

    @ Brad: Believe it or not, the steps are not wood. They are actually a very hard and thick plastic. When I first bought the boat I thought the steps were cheap until I pulled one off. I was shocked as to how heavy it was. I'll let you know what I find out from Eddie Marine.

    They were made by Ray at Fabricators West in Costa Mesa (out of business). Wayne Earl (still in business) did the Starboard plastic for Ray. I also heard Eddie is building them now. If not, get a hold of Wayne Earl and see if he knows someone.

    Update: I e-mailed a pic of the step to Chris @ Eddie Marine. He confirmed that they did buy Fabricators West of Costa Mesa some time ago for their bow rails. He did say that he recognized the step and that he would check on having a duplicate created. I am awaiting his call with info on pricing.
