Material for swim ladder steps?
I have a swim ladder that is permanently attached to the boat. It is hinged and I just drop it into the water when in use.
It has a stainless steel frame and the previous owner screwed wooden steps onto the steel cross-beams. About 16" long, and 2" across, 1/2" think. So this is a small step that does tend to dig into one's feet when boarding.
Is there some kind of softer material that I can use for the steps instead of the small wooden slats that are there now? Last year I duct-taped swimming noodles around each for a softer step. Kind of worked, but they didn't last long.
