    I thought the walk through was the strip on the back engine hatch and the section on the back seat.
    Itís the edges of the gator step. When you are maneuvering around passing a board off to someone helping a kid down the platform, whatever I have a tendency to catch the edge of my knees on the edge of the gator step and it is a hard edge. Same could be said for the step pad on the rear seat. Certainly not saying itís a showstopper, just saying itís a little bit annoying, and for me the small benefits of the walk-through I sort of mitigated a little bit by the fact that I bang my knees on it.

    atx not having a walkover was one of the big reasons we didn't ink on that boat in 2020. our first supra didn't have(wasn't a thing back then), last 3 did and we wouldn't buy without it. saves on vinyl.

    to the OP- the MB we shopped in phx had walkthru on the back sundeck but not the rear seat. speaking with the dealer, they had several customers that they ordered the nautty seat step and had a local upholstery shop install it. said it was only a couple hundred and would do it for us if we ordered new. sure rear sundeck is same theory.
    Explained above. I guess maybe I havenít kept a boat long enough to wear out vinyl from stepping on seats with bare feet.

    Do you have a picture of this plate? How is it attached? Did you have a 16 or 16.5 tall on your Makai 450?

    Attached with 5200 and a few dinky little screws to hold it until the 5200 dries.

    I wouldn't say that the vinyl "wears out" but more to keep it in better shape/clean. we kept our first 2 boats over 5 years each so a little bit of protection keeps the vinyl in better shape to sell. we did notice from the supra w/o walkover to the next boat with, cleaning was easier each trip as the sundeck was cleaner on the boat with walkthru. if we traded every few years likely wouldn't care.
    most of the posts I see over the last 13 years of guys redoing interiors seems that seat edges and sundecks are the first to show major use.

    And what is this Nautty Seat Step of which you speak? A quick google search only reveals disciplinary techniques..lol
