To accomodate my 2 year old and an 80+ family members, I installed a stainless steel 16" handrail (from medical supply store) with 1/4" through bolts (4) and 2 #10x1 1/2 steetmetal screws into the port gangway entrance frame. This accomodates the gangway cover and provides protection for my fire extinguisher mounted just to the inside of the cabin. There is plenty of room to haul coolers and gear in and out of the cabin.
