End result, with outboard bracket and two lugs to strap down fuel tank. And leaves room to walk off platform - hopefully something like a marina

Stainless frame, anti skid Starboard in Dolphin Grey, Armstrong flip down ladder.

It's great having the extra space. Sometimes the cooler and/or an extra 5 gallons of fuel get strapped down back there to clear deck space.

I agree, I just go backwards over the tubes, then come back up the ladder at the back, that is when it is warm enough here to swim in the sea, maybe about twice a year. 8-(

How come the sea was warm when I was much younger and now it feels damn cold all the time ? No need to answer.

Good stuff mate! That's the sort of thing I had in mind, nice and simple and neat. Was looking at a product made from same sort of stuff as boat board but with 8 mm square holes all through it. Less strain on it in heavy seas and a bit grippier.

My Ribtec has a relatively simple moulded GRP section bolted through the transom, topped with a bit of teak.

Ribeye seem to have quite a nice setup-it's a very small bathing platform with a ladder built in. Have a look at pics of C2 Ribs new Ribeye (called Gemineye) on Facebookand there's a good pic of one.
