On our 63 ocean, i had the steps rebuilt in teak. we made the just a little larger and made all the difference in the world. Ocean steps suck. I think the whole project cost me just a couple hundred bucks and it was well worth it.
Lou, I hope all is well. I know that Pipewelders out of Miami does make a hydraulic or electric hydraulic ladder set up for flybridges, I did just check and they have a great video of the ladder in action.
