Default More J.M.WHITE detail

Ever notice in this familiar picture of the main stairway of the J.M.WHITE that the stairs are not attached to the deck? If they were attached, as the boat vibrated and shuck, they would tare themselves apart. In the old days, when I worked on the BELLE, the stairs from the skylight to the hurricane deck were not bolted to the deck at the bottom for the same reason.
