Hello Newbie here trying to find some valuable info. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Where do you guys go for custom swim platforms and platform brackets?

Contact Brent Lemke at Boat Country, he has custom composite platforms. <BR> <BR>209-838-2628 <BR> <BR>Good Luck

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.

Travis, <BR> <BR>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 &amp; make your own??? Good Luck <BR> <BR>Lzy

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 <a href="mailto:timcross807@msn">timcross807@msn</a> 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. <BR> <BR>Tim - you have an email from me.

How about composite deck material instead of teak? <BR> <BR><a href="http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/fish_6942/album?.dir=fe89&amp;.src=ph&amp;store=&amp;prodid= &amp;.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/ph//my_photos" target="_blank">http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/fish_6942/album?.dir=fe89&amp;.src=ph&amp;store=&amp;prodid= &amp;.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/ph//my_photos</a>

Paul, <BR> <BR>How is that a DIY platform???

carcrz 04-17-2006 8:19 PM

never mind - it's the new stuff that is replacing the ACQ wood. Made out of recycled plastics, right?

holy_smokes 04-18-2006 6:36 AM
