I don't think Euro styling is the most dangerous thing about boating, I think boarding a tender or runabout is about as dangerous as it gets. As many have indicated, it is incumbent on the host/captain/mate or whomever to ensure safe boarding. Simple really. Now, non skid surfaces to step on are a brilliant idea. I just had a friend crack his ribs and get a shiner falling from his deck house into the companionway of his sailboat while on the hard doing paint prep. He knows where the slippery bits are. Boats are slippery.
