|Hello Newbie here trying to find some valuable info. |
Where do you guys go for custom swim platforms and platform brackets?
|Contact Brent Lemke at Boat Country, he has custom composite platforms. |
|Spoke with Brent this evening, BTW: Great Guy, but I'm needing a different style than what he's making. Anybody know of some teak platform builders? Or, "cost competitive" aluminum platforms?|
|why not buy a teak swim plat from say a mastercraft dealer the 04-05 x-30 plat is one of the best looking ones I have seen.|
Try a local dealer - mine is Ski World, Pleasanton - see if they have any old ones in storage / back of the lot / leftovers / etc... The fiberglass are becoming popular so I would imagine dealers may have extra teaks? Maybe even just head down n get the measurements & make your own??? Good Luck
|Travis, My name is Tim Cross, and I am a finish carpenter. I recently built my own swim platform out of Brazilian Cherry. I would build you one if you would like. I will try to post a pic. I can do whatever you like. I inserted a trap door to access the wedge on my Malibu. Let me know what you think. I can use any kind of hardwood you like (teak). Send me an e-mail to timcross807@msn and I will send the attachments pics. I am not able to upload the pics. at this time.|
|All great suggestions. Thanks and keep them coming. |
Tim - you have an email from me.
|How about composite deck material instead of teak? |
|Travis, Call Jay at ski view he builds swim platforms for most of the boat company's, He will hook you up. |
How is that a DIY platform???
|never mind - it's the new stuff that is replacing the ACQ wood. Made out of recycled plastics, right? |
|Paul - is that "Starboard" material? |
Scott - I'll call Jay today. Thanks!
