3207 Swim platform- Dimensions and supports

Postby redmen62 » March 6th, 2018, 6:12 pm

Hi All,

I inherited my parent's 85 aft cabin when they went bigger last fall. As winter is stating to finally draw to an end in Wisconsin and the snowmobiles are put away I've started to shift my eyes to the boat and what my first projects are going to be.

I'm thinking the first task is to expand the swim platform... I did it on my old boat (277 Regal) and loved the extra room while we were out on the hook. Problem is the boat is over an hour away and I wanted to start some pre-work on it without having to drive up and take measurements an pictures... which is where you nice folks come in!

Does anyone have the dimensions for a stock 3207 swim platform, and have any pics and details on the support structure and how it's mounted to the transom?

Thanks in advance!!

I've installed several of their platforms. They've all needed minor tweaking/grinding along the edges against the hull as every boat is different. They take that into consideration by building in enough material. You end up with a great product, just make sure you thru-bolt the supports to the transom. It may be a challenge to get at these areas on the inside but it's the way to go. Make sure you seal the fasteners properly.

I got a quote from them for my old Regal and they wanted like $1300... I'm assuming it'll be about the same for the Carver

I was only a few hundred into the Regal, so I figured I'd do the same on the Carver... just don't want to drive up the lake to take measurements to then build in my garage

I like the look of their platforms. I would like to get one for my 355, but it would force me into a larger slip and cost me another $1250 yr, on top of the platform price. :cry:
