A doorstep for a Minuet 6.0 ?

Has someone tried to install or has installed a doorstep on a Minuet 6.0? If yes, would like to hear from this or these people and would appreciate some photos. Thanks in advance for sharing your experience.
André Doré, P.Q.

Our little original 1978 Argosy Minuet 6.7 m came with a little separate aluminum step stool. No steps were installed on them.

Here is a photo of an original Argosy Minuet Step-Stool:

The step is formed from heavy aluminum that is riveted - - my speculation has been that it was fabricated by the same craftsmen that built our Minuets.


P.S.: A side benefit to the aluminum construction and portable design is that it eliminates the complexity of hinges and mechanisms as well as steel parts that would need periodic painting . . . .

We like rigid step stools such as the one Kevin shows in his post above more than the fold down steps which seem to need additional reinforcing beneath to feel secure. Your step is a prize, Kevin, but similar aluminum stepstools are available that will work well too. ~G
