It strikes me that any competant welder could make these sort of items over a lunch hour. If you or the crew are short, tall, heavy or light, you might find something gauged to your hip height (in sea boots?) is better than something made for an idealized 5' 10" sailor.

My wife is 5' 1" and I am 6' 1", so I think about this stuff a lot, like "compromise" spacing on mast steps that can handle both a size 7 and a size 13 shoe size.
