My Swim platform was destroyed in the storm.

Postby jwrape » April 30th, 2014, 9:24 am

A couple nights ago, Georgia had a bad storm and my rear line broke and proceeded to slam my Teak swim platform into the dock over and over.
Now I need another one. Anyone know where I can find a 10' Swim platform for a decent price?
Here is my old one.

I bought this 105" Swim Platform yesterday from a Sea Ray 330 for $100.
I've got to clean it, paint it and vanish it to make it pretty for the Carver 28' Mariner. It will be about 3/4" too wide on each side but it will look great I think and be MUCH larger than the original Teak Platform. I'm going to re-use my original mounting hardware on the Carver
