jennis9, Thank you for the photos, they are most helpful. I do not have any original parts to loan as they have all been refurbished and are back on my boat. I am still working on the swing down section. If you can find two treads I don't see why you couldn't build the upper stationary section from scratch.

Carl,

I don't have anything to use as the guide/template for the stainless railing. I do think I found the brackets.
I will find a way to make that happen.

OR, I'll have a tuna door put in :)

Not being a purist, and having back problems, I added an additional step to my ladder (and never regretted it). Did the same thing on my present boat.
