Same here, I prefer that style. Some friends of mine are up there in age and a little more "round" shall we say. They wanted the swing down step as the standard one for the spark ain't going to do anything for getting them back on in deep water. Just going through pictures it looks like it could work on the 2 person but not with the 3 person extension? IDK I haven't bought one yet, waiting until the spring. If I can fit one on though I'm definitely going to do that on my own instead of the piddly step they have.
