How much would you charge us for one?
LOL More than anyone would be willing to pay! When I asked about budget for the project we decided it didn't matter, we even looked at teak. Insanely expensive. So much of it is custom with the size and angle of the hull.

Oh @VisionPNW you are thinking so literally. Perhaps you might consider that @capta sails in a beautiful part of the world. It has warm gentle breezes... And a beautiful step, custom made as you have identified would be worth a passage aboard with Capta to discuss the especially pleasing experiences of stepping aboard his vessel. Perhaps event the vessel's name could be carved in the step. making the value priceless... Like a passage aboard his vessel...

Just thinking outside of the box here....

This is a great opportunity for your students. Modify the design to make it adjustable and then set up a production line to make them. Lots of practical learning here. :)

Leather! I'll have to try that on the feet of my steps.
I went with rough sawn teak. Gives good grip. Just not as beautiful as yours. Nicely done
