1957 Lyman Runabout -Boarding Step & Jump Seat Fabrication

Her owners challenged John to design, fabricate and install a pair of boarding steps that are also comfortable jump seat – units for our 1957 23’ Lyman Runabout preservation project.

Sourcing stainless brackets that were strong and worked simply proved to challenging, but Google sent us to www.boatoutfitters.com, who stock stainless steel folding seat brackets that are perfect for this purpose.

We caught up with John about halfway through this challenge. Today’s video celebrates another milestone facing into our wake.

I will allow John to fill in the details and demonstrate his units’ utility and versatility. Now it’s on to the helm station.
