Well, my swim platform had always been loose, ie it knocked in the bracket slightly, and I hadn't payed too much attention to it. So after towing a couple hours to the lake it felt a little more loose than usual but again, didn't think too much of it. Until my wife pointed out the 1/4" gap between the top of the bracket and the stern.

The upper three screws had stripped out the holes. Thank god the bottom two were solid. I could have lost the damn thing driving down the freeway. Take the platform off for the ride home and pull the bracket off, it starts pissing water out of the lower two holes, that isn't good either.

I know the lower two holes are holding the screws and might just be open to the bilge, hence the water. I can't get to the backside of the middle upper screw and of course the upper two line up perfectly with the floorboard of the storage locker.

I would love some suggestions. Cut out the floorboard and bolt through, fill holes with epoxy resin and redrill, maybe sell and find a cheaper hobby?

Platformless in OK,
