Mark I have always had an appreciation for the inventor. The steps you have designed and created are truly unique. I have not seen anything even close in design or functionality in any magazine or over the internet. I am in my mid 40’s, with your EZEE Steps getting in and out of my Stratos has never and will never be easier. Whether I am in my driveway climbing in of the boat or at the launch hooking and unhooking the EZEE Step have made the process EZEE. Fishing waters in the northeast are cold in the spring and fall, with your EZEE Steps there is no more slippery trailer frame to negotiate and NO more cold wet feet!. By no means is your product for us older guys, 17 to 70 will also enjoy the benefits. I consider them as much a safety benefit as anything. Everyone that owns a boat should have the EZEE Steps.

After years and years of climbing over my trailer winch to get into my boat, I finally said, "No more." This spring I searched the internet and found "Ezee Step." One look at their video and I knew this was the answer. I emailed Mark a few photos of my boat and trailer. We touched base by telephone, and he custom-made the steps to fit my rig, no easy task considering I have both a bow mounted electric motor and an electric anchor winch hanging over the bow.
I've been on the water several times since installing them (a 10 minute job). I will never own another trailer without these steps. I fish alone a lot and balancing on the winch while climbing over the bow is not only difficult but dangerous. Every boat trailer should come with these steps installed.

The Yamaha SX210 Jet Boat has a unique center boarding area in the bow. My Ezeestep two step unit greatly simplifies the difficult task of boarding while launching. It is much safer, because previously I had to hang over the edge of the bow and feel around for something to stand on while retrieving the boat, and while launching I had to climb up on the trailer and pull myself up onto the boarding platform, over the winch. Now I can just walk on board. Installation was a breeze (it was all one piece, no assembly). Thanks !

In 2003 I was faced with the prospect of my fishing activities becoming drastically curtailed.My ability to get in and out of my boat ( 1800 Lund Fisherman ) was diminishing rapidly due to after effects of polio and advancing arthritis. I was retired and often fished alone during the week. After a couple of almosts across the spare tire to the trailer yoke,I had to do something . A friend of mine had a set of Ezee Steps mounted on his trailerand I tried them out. Here was a definite maybe. I called Mark and explained my situation and physical limitations. His answer, " no problem ." The new steps opened up a whole new freedom for me and I was back on the River. Unfortunately it was short lived.My right knee was headed for a replacement and my mobility was again diminished.A call to Mark with a big HELP and a third step was added to allow me additionaloptions. This got me back on the River and bought me some more time on the River.After my replacement surgery having the steps allowed me to get back fishing muchsooner.While my needs were special, but if things had been different I would not own a boat without Ezee Steps. From a safety standpoint , they are a must in my opinion.Mark`s workmanship is without question. The materials used are top notch. The galvanizing on the steps and stainless hardware are first rate as well as the asphaltic coating used on the risers. I lived on a gravel road the first four years that I had them and they still lookbrand new. No rust or stone chips.To me they are a must. One misstep on an icy morning and your fishing could be limited to memories.

Here are a few pictures of my ezee steps installed. I want to thank you again for all your help. It was very easy doing business with you and I think you went above and beyond when it came to working with me to make sure I made the correct measurements. In the end it paid off with a set of steps that fit perfectly. I can now climb into the bow of my boat very easily and this will make it much easier when loading my boat back onto the trailer after a day on the water. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about getting a set of steps to make the move. They are well worth the cost. And by the way the cost was extremely reasonable. Even with the shipping to California I found your price to be nearly half of what some of the boat shops wanted to install a set of steps.

I just purchased this brand new boat and found out what a nightmare it was to get in and out of it. The trolling motor added to the situation. I contacted the dealer, manufacturer and countless boat stores looking for a solution to the problem. NO ONE could help. Then an answer to prayer - EZEE Step. Marks knowledge and expertise with this product solved my problem. I can't say enough about EZEE Step, painless ordering, fast turnaround, easily installs and looks great.
John Muratori November 2, 2015
Here's a product that solved a major problem for me. Older I get, the harder it is to climb in/out of the boat when loading. When loading by myself without an adjacent courtesy dock, climbing over the front has become difficult for my bass boat and next to impossible for my deep v multi species boat.
I ordered a set for my multi-species and installed them in 10 minutes. Had them made "detachable" so I have the option of removing. They are awesome and I will be ordering a set for my bass boat.
I've learned of many great products and solutions on this board. Wanted to share this one.
Dick Euting November 2, 2015
I finally took the time this afternoon to install and set the steps. Installation time about 15 min. Adjustment time 15 – 20 minutes. About the 4th time down the steps from the boat I started just stepping. How smooth and comfortable! Well worth the money, I highly recommend ezeestep. They are sturdy, well built, heavy duty, and fit so well they are easy to install. Mark, you have an excellent product, and your follow thorough with customer service is superb.
Terry Ryan November 2, 2015
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail after the installation. The steps work and fit perfectly, installation was very easy. These steps make it so much easier to enter the boat, not only at the ramp but those many times you are working and organizing to get ready for the next big trip. A GREAT product, one that I would highly recommend. I was extremely impressed with the professional manner that you demonstrated and how you manage your business. You have a very good product and you certainly have the business skills to be successful.Thanks and don't hesitate to let me know if I can do any thing to help.

Mark, I just wanted to comment on how much I love my ez steps. I run a Ranger 619 and without them it would nearly be impossible to launch or load my boat by myself. They are also very handy to load things whether I am getting ready for a tournament or taking the family out for the day on the water. Mine are now a year old and they still look like I put them on yesterday. They are well constructed and you can't believe how many positive comments I get from people at the ramp. Thank you for making a fine product and I will never own a boat without these on the trailer.
Jim Schneider November 2, 2015
I'm sending you some images of my newly installed EZEE STEP system. The product is very well engineered and manufactured. With Mark's assistance with getting the measurements for my application, the process was easy. Installing the steps & grab pole was very easy. All parts were included.
I am 77 years old & I fish alone a lot. This product will give me many more years of worry free fishing, especially loading my boat on the drive on trailer and then exiting the boat safely in places where there is no dock or pier.

The height of the bow on my Ranger 620 made climbing in and out of my boat difficult when launching or tailoring my boat while alone. And in 28 years of fishing, I can't count the number of times I have climbed in and out of my boat to get gear stored in my boat compartments, or watched in horror as a fishing friend would step on a fragile boat fender as he or she climbed into my boat.Then I found EZEE Step!With the EZEE Step system mounted on my trailer frame climbing into and out of my boat is safe and effortless! It is as easy as doing the two-step! And wherever I go, boaters stop and ask how they can get them. It won't be long before boaters everywhere have an EZEE Stepsystem installed on their boat trailers.

Never again will I have to tell my Grandson we will not be able to go fishing because I am physically unable to launch the boat by myself.....without having to get thoroughly soaked in the process. I have attached photos of the installation.
Thanks again for a great product and an easy installation which took less than 30 minutes.
Alan Blackwell EZEEStep October 30, 2015
Dad was blown away at Christmas! He had seen them at a tournament and so wished to have one as it was getting hard and unsafe for him to get in and out of the boat doing what he loves to do, Fish!. My brother Scott contacted you, you called me back and you were so helpfull with measurements. It arrived as you said it would and your follow up call was much appreciated. We have installed the ezeestep and Dad cannot wait for winter to leave so he can get back out there on the lake. We are singing praises on the quality and service. A huge thanks from our families.

I am extremely happy with the ezee step. Mark does a top notch job in building the steps and getting the right angle & height. Before, I had a tough time getting in and out of the bow when loading and unloading. The bow on my warrior boat made it difficult to even lean over to winch. Now I can just step right off the bow onto the trailer tongue when winching up the last few inches.
I believe every boat/trailer should have the ezee step for safety and ease of climbing in and out of the boat, young and elderly alike. I highly recommend the ezee step to every boat owner. You'll be glad you got it!
Thanks again Mark, and keep up the good work!
Brad Bartels November 2, 2015
Mark, I got the steps on in about 5 minutes, including adjustment, and they look and work great! I was ready for it to take about 30 minutes to install and adjust, thinking it would take some help, but was done in a fraction of that time and by myself. Some of the comments I received were, "I didn't even notice them" and "they look like they came with the trailer". Pretty good testimonials. I have to say, it was so nice not having to pull out the step ladder this weekend just to load the boat up. My wife loved them!
Shawn Johnson November 2, 2015
For the past 8 years, I've literally smiled to myself every time I enter and exit my boats. EZEE Steps make daily trips in and out of my boats safer, and easier. If you see my boat around, please stop me and check these steps out for yourself. Once you see how they will make your life easier at the ramp, gas station, home, etc, you'll be giving Mark a call to order the highest quality custom trailer steps available today!

As CEO of both domestic and international companies, I have engaged in many purchasing decisions. I have never been as satisfied with anything I have ever purchased as I am with my Ezee Steps. From the first phone call through custom design to delivery was four days, and all of it done by phone. The design far exceeded my expectations which those who know me will say is impossible to do. You did everything you said you would do and then even followed up to see if I was satisfied. It just doesn't get better. Thanks for re-instating my faith that customer service and creative problem solving is still possible somewhere.
Calvin Yoke November 2, 2015
As full time fishing guide on the Mississippi river I am constantly tailoring my boat to the fish. Loading and un-loading the boat off the trailer used to be difficult. Having to walk out on the tongue and then use either the winch post or spare tire as a step to get in or out was dangerous until I found the EZEE STEP.
This quality crafted step system now makes this part of my job easy. Getting in or out of the boat, no matter where I am, is now easy and safe.
The steps are wide, slip resistant, and strong. I highly endorse and recommend this product to fisherman of all ages. Try a set, you won't be disappointed. I have the 3 step system on my boat. The 3rd step gives my older clients the ability to use either leg to take the first step up when getting in. We have many boat landings where we have no docks and this is an absolute lifesaver for them. I used to have to have them crawl over the front of the boat to get in after I had put the rig in the water. Now it's a simple 3 steps and you in the boat. I can't begin to guess how many of my clients have commented on how they just love this product. Now my boat carpet stays cleaner and my clients don't strugle to get in and out of the boat. I wouldn't think of owning a rig without a set of EZEE STEPS!!!
