95' Outrage rocket launchers access

Anyone know of an accessory item that attaches to the deck(next to the leaning post/bait tank area) that makes it easier for anyone under 6'6" to access the rocket launchers. Perferably something that blends in.

If it is an aluminum post with legs.
If you don't need to get a cooler etc. out from under the post or use doors, you could install a flip down step that spans the legs.
If cooler etc. are a problem I have seen small permanent "steps" more like nubs screwed or welded to the individual legs. They support a one foot step up.
If it is a glass post your could bolt some flip down transom steps to the outside somewhere.

Here is an example of a transom step.

Great ideas. The flip down cast peice will probably do the trick. Thanks for the tips.I was hoping I didn't have another stump question.

The newer OR's have a fold down foot rest that I know is strong enough to stand on. It is hinged on both sides of the leaning post and is a stainless steel tube with a narrow plastic foot rest which runs along 3/4 of the length. It is held in place when not being used with a plastic C device that the tube snaps into. Folds up out of the way to point that I forget its there sometimes.

Thanks, I have been meaning to go look at the newer models. Sounds like the proper fix is already been engineered. Strenght of the attachment is a concern of mine.
Thanks again, Jim
