Ladder for 1984 GS44CC

We lost the ladder for our GS44CC sailing vessel. Does anyone know who the manufacturer was and whether they are still in business?

Re: Ladder for 1984 GS44CC

To the best of my recollections, I believe that there were three companies that typically supplied custom stainless steel fabrications to Florida Boat Builders. These were
Tops in Quality: They seem to be out of business or bought by a company called White Water Marine

C.S. Johnson: which does not appear to produce ladders any longer, and

I can't be sure that I remember the name of the third company but I think it was Suncoast Specialties, Inc.

I have emailed them. They look to be a capable firm and I may engage them to make a custom ladder.

On another forum I learned that Southcoast Marine made the ladders. I contacted them and they said they could not help me.

Final ladder disposition: I found a 1981 GS44CC nearby and the owner has allowed me to borrow the ladder to be duplicated by a SS fabrication shop.
