When stairs are too shallow

It's warming up in Port Dover, and Brian is working on s/v Whiskeyjack once again. Today, he deals with stairs that are not deep enough to fully accommodate feet:
I slip down the companionway steps at least a couple of times a season. Even sober.  The problem is that the steps aren't very deep.

I cut some teak salvaged from DonorBoat and installed nosings on the treads.  They are actually straight - just a weird optical illusion in the image below.

Aside from the functional aspect, I think these look great too!
