Tom, I think these can be had from your dealer still but I'm not sure. All you have to do is cut the rub rail away to the width of the handle. Then the handle has I believe 4 threaded rods that are welded to it that you will drill holes through the gel. This is right on the split between the deck and hull so no big deal. Then all there is to do is mount it with some stainless washers, nuts, and 3m 4200 around the threaded rod and back plate. Then put the rub rail end pieces on which you will also need to source.

Maybe this picture will help

Thanks that's perfect. I was thinking they would mount on the red area in your case. In that location do they really help? Seems like a long reach. The wife struggles to get onto the platform, no issues for me. We are both "seasoned" citizens but I still slalom she just swims & tubes Thanks again

It does help a bit but I don't really grab it until my knees are already on the swim deck
