No, steps have little or no effect on the performance of a steam engine.

How long do you think the boat being built beside it is? (bearing in mind the slight clue in the title of the thread.)
Now if you still think I need steps to get up on that ...................

The overhang is mainly to cover the drives, allow the exhaust to flow away from the transom and to look good.
the steps mould. the steps on the hull are vented by rebates behind the step although these are different heights and handed at the ends, they are the same radius and profile. The moulding taken off that mould will fit all four step vents, so I only have to do all the rubbing and polishing once on an external curve on the bench rather than four times on an internal curve on top of the boat.
