Trying to find an aluminum step

Anyone running one? I'm trying to find one second hand or have someone build me one. I have a step hull now and I love it but it's wore out and I'm ready for something new. I'm really not a fan of a glass boat. I like the longevity and durability of an aluminum hull and would like a deck over but I also am torn because I know I'd miss the speed and handling of my step. An aluminum step would ideal but I've never really seen any around that aren't full on race boats. I have a 429 inch LS that's looking for a new home. Any input is appreciated.

There's a couple people running them including themselves. Boats ride good. Stay in the water. Built tough and last. Give them a call in sure they got some pictures and videos they'll share.

I knew Jody had built his sled a while back I didn't know their steps had been around a while, that's nice there's another option around for a metal step

Yes they'll build a sled or decked step whatever you want. And whatever size too.
