|I have a '99 Glastron I/O with what they consider a "swim step" (actually just a slippery 1' fiberglass ledge). I'm considering adding an aftermarket swimstep to make loading the kids easier/safer around the outdrive. My questions are these: |
1) has anyone ever seen any aftermarket makers of swimsteps for I/O's? (There is a close one (teak) in Boater's World catalog but I'd have to cut it and fashion some supports);
2) am I dreaming to think I can McGuyver one?;
3) since the step has to be a good foot off the water to clear the outdrive in the "up" position, does this defeat the purpose?
4) anyone ever made one for their boat?
Glastron's website is no help and the local GT dealer looked at me like I was high when I asked them about it (although I swear I saw one once that looked like it was made for my boat).
Picture is from Glastron's website.

|if you can dream it then do it!!! no one is stopping you. |
|i would go to www.swimplatforms.com |
I have ordered from them and they did a great job but it isnt cheap!
|you can make them in two shorter parts on each side of the sterndrive, or the same with a removable or lifting center piece.|
|Thanks Jim, that's exactly what I was looking for. |
